Qmail 1.03 setup behind router, hostname question


Hi.
Thanks ahead of time to those that respond to this thread.
I have Linux Redhat 8.0 installed, this Linux box sits on my LAN behind a Siemens Speedstream Router 2604. I have port-forwarded both smtp and pop3 from my router to my linux box.
I'm trying to get qmail working for personal website, (i.e. myname.com). I use zoneedit.com to do DNS and mail forwarding.
Samba works, Proftp works, etc.
Question 1 When installing Redhat 8.0, do I have to use localhost.localdomain where I'm behind a router or can I use for example gandalf.myname.com?
Question 2: When I run ./config in the qmail installation directory, what would I use...gandalf.myname.com, localhost.localdomain, just localhost? I've tried just about any combination using config-fast as well, just wondering which one to use behind a router?
I've tried following lifewithqmail.org to a "t" and still no success in receiving my email through ximian.
All help is MUCH appreciated.
Evan
