    I'd also suggest you take a backup before making the change just in case there are any problems.
    How does this command change my Host Name, when my new Host Name is not mentioned?

    We seem to be going round in circles here and I'm at a loss to understand what exactly you want. You've asked how to change the hostname in Zimbra (have you not?) and you've been given the details, I don't understand where the problem is. If the hostname I posted above is not the hostname that you want then enter it on the command line as the only option.
    Regards

    Sorry for the confusion!
    I want my new Host Name to be maildomain.com. Can I set this by using:

    /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsetservername maildomain.com

    Yes, that's what has already been said - do read the wiki article in detail before you proceed with the change. I would point out that the hostname (either in zimbra or your /etc/hosts file) should really not be the same as your domain name, it should be the FQDN of the server.
