    When you installed Zimbra you would have been asked if you wanted to change the domain name, instead of hitting enter (which you did) you should have replied 'Y' and changed it to your correct domain name. As you didn't change the domain name the default is to use the FQDN of your server.

    You can either remove zimbra completely and start from scratch and enter the correct domain name, you can rename your current domain name to your correct name or you can create a new domain of the correct name and set it as the default and create all your accounts in that. This subject has been covered many times in the forums.

    Is it better to rename the domain through the command line or through the web management console? I ask because i tried changing the domain name through the web console and it made ZCS unstable and unusable

    You need to use zmprov to rename the domain.

    You need to backup the /opt/zimbra directory structure (there are scripts and details in the forums for doing a backup).

    Yes, for the open source version, you must stop Zimbra.
