    Default How to eliminate hostname from domain during setup

    Just completed my first ZCS setup and everything is up and running. However, somewhere in the install the hostname / servername (mail) is being appended to the domain name (let's just say domain.com) everywhere, not just in the mail server record. So, instead of sending mail to myname@domain.com, it has to be sent to myname@mail.domain.com. Is this something that I can correct post-setup or would it be best to re-construct everything, and if so, where did I go wrong in getting the hostname appended to everything?

    You were asked during the install if you wished to rename the domain, if you'd read the message you would have seen that the domain name was incorrect - you should have renamed it to the correct name. You can rename the domain using zmprov, you could also have found this answer by searching the forums.
