    Default Domain showing as mail.company.com instead of company.com

    I am not new to Zimbra having done many many installations. I am running on Ubuntu server 8.04 and upon installation, the domain shows as mail.company.com. So the e-mail addresses are user@mail.company.com instead of user@company.com. The host name IS mail.company.com and that's the way I want it but I don't want it that way for routing mail. Why does the new install do this and how can I fix it. If I re-install and change the hostname, it's just gonna give it the new hostname as part of the domain name is my fear. Can I just set up a new domain in the admin panel to fix it? If so, what do I have to do to accept and send mail for company.com?

    Thanks everyone.

    You just have to add the domain and then move the users that you created to be under that domain. The server will receive mail for any domains you add.

    So then I just don't use the one it created? Sorry for seeming stupid here but I never had this problem on older versions. I'm just going to point my MX records to the server address and then set up company.com as another domain. That should work?

    Just one question. I see there are issues with the calendar and documents. Since this is a new domain and I have no accounts on it yet, would the rename affect new users at all with respect to the calendar and document issues?

    Thanks,

    I'm gonna give it a try and let you know how it works. I can always rebuild it I guess.

    Thanks again Bill,
