    Default Network Configuration

    In the single-server install manual, it is stated under RHEL customizations that

    "Network Configuration>Network Devices>Hostname should be configured manually with the fully
    qualified hostname [mailhost.example.com] of the Zimbra server"

    Is this absolutely necessary, since I am going to be entering a domain when I do the install?

    i.e.: I want to keep the name fred.thisplace.ext (not the real server name), and enter the actual "main" domain name during the install.

    Does this work, or will I bork my install?

    Absolutely necessary, no but you will save yourself some possible grief if you give the server the correct FQDN - I usually find it's best to give the LAN computers the FQDN of your real domain name.
