    Hello,

    1. In an email I see:

    061F From: Mail Delivery System <Mailer-Daemon@vps.mywebsite.com>
    024T To: serv@xxx.com
    059 Subject: Mail delivery failed: returning message to sender
    050I Message-Id: <E1GrQmV-0001zq-7G@vps.mywebsite.com>



    Where can I change vps.mywebsite.com to something else, for example: ns.mywebsite.com?


    2. I have just renamed my hostname to servers.mywebsites.com and the hostname is shown correctly at dnsstuff.com.

    However, when I traceroute to my website, the destination is still: vps.mywebsite.com, how to change the destination address to servers.mywebsite.com?


    Thank you in advance.

    Regards,

    Contact your provider, it's to do with Reverse DNS if it still shows the old hostname in traceroutes.
