    That's so it can recieve mail under the standard linux mailserver convention of root@server.domain.com; you can change from server.domain.com > domain.com when the installer prompts for a mx record (which you probably won't have for server.domain.com because your asking about this) or at the menu change the default creation, or accept and rename that domain later, or add a 2nd domain later (there's no limit).

    Now if you want your server's hostname entirely as domain.com (completely or just in banners) rather than say mail.domain.com that's technically possible too, but not very common.

    Had another thought when I re-read the title 'can url format be changed?' combined with the fact that your not a new member got me thinking: Are you talking about share url's?

    Some people have say longfunnyname.domain.com for internal access, and plain webmail.domain.com aliases for both internal and external access.

    To modify the rest url's it's zimbraPublicServiceHostname (and some variants if you want to change protocol/port as well.) If you have more than one domain you may also want to set a virtual host so that you only need to type the 'username' part of the login and not 'username@domain.com'.

    Hi,

    Thanks for replying... Sorry I dropped of the face of the earth for some time...

    U said "'"Now if you want your server's hostname entirely as domain.com (completely or just in banners) rather than say mail.domain.com that's technically possible too, but not very common.""

    What you said above is exaclty what management wants...

    (Our current setup is abc.xyz.com where hostname-abc and domainname-xyz.com
    al mail currently goes as user@abc.xyz.com
    and we want only user@xyz.com ))

    Have tried doing this but ,the problem i'm facing is supposing i change the hostname to abc and domain to xyz - i get a site abc.xyz , but all mail to and from goes as username@xyz
    (We only have an intranet - so I guess the absence of the .com doesn't matter)


    How do I go about this??
