Well its not a problem to say, just was wondering is all, I thought it might be a virtual setting that would be set somewhere is all. That seems obvious now about the fqdn for the server though. The way I was thinking of it was that when the sending mail server initiates the HELO it would be looking for the mail.trells.com for say and if the mail server is say setup for like mail.whatever.com it would see that it is looking for mail.trells.com and respond with a HELO for mail.trells.com and not the mail.whatever.com.
There is so much more I got to learn about mail :) Thanks for the info.
