mail.domain.com is the domain you use for your mail server only under the circumstance thatif you know it is setup correctly. For most shared/reseller clients, this will be your main domain name. We recommend if using mail that resides on the server you are hosted using the hostname instead of mail.domain.com.

email@domain.com and password are used as a place holders for the actual email and password you would use when setting this up in your mail client.
