Yes, it is possible to change the name, first rename your droplet, then inside your droplet modify /etc/hostname and restart network or restart your droplet.

As I don’t know what OS Distro are you using this procedure can change, so be sure to google hot to rename hostname on your distro,

Thank you for your answer,
I use ubuntu Ubuntu 14.04,

Now, my email client (thunderbird) only can connect with my mail server with this setting

Incoming Imap
Port: 993
Authentication: Normal Password

Outgoing SMTP:
Port: 587
Authentication: Normal Password

What I want change servername for Incoming IMAP and Outgoing SMTP. I want to change to other domain.

Finally successfully change mail server name by running reconfiguration

sudo dpkg-reconfigure postfix
