If you registered a domain called "domain.com", and you administer the authoritative DNS for that domain, and your want your SMTP host to be called "mail", then yes, you can.

If you registered a domain called "domain.com", but you don't administer the authoritative DNS for that domain, contact the authority you registered your domain with.

If you didn't register a domain, then the SMTP host address probably equals the host you're on, or another host on your LAN.
