    Hi there,

    Getting email service up and running and I need an SSL cert for my mail server.

    However, before I buy one I wanted to see if there was a way to change the subdomain that is used for Dovecot or Exim. The name it uses right now isn't quite as self-explanatory and I'd love to change it to something like "mail."

    Is that possible?

    Thanks you.
