Set a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) hostname on your server

I was reading on installation instructions for iredmail and it says you need FQDN name in etc/hostname and etc/hosts.
I in hostname I have have veepme
In in hosts I have 127.0.0.1 localhost veepme
what should I change veepme to
or should I leave veepme and add a FQDN to the two files.
You need a name that uniquely identifies your location in the DNS tree. In order for it to work for its intended purpose (e-mail, in your case), it needs to be a name that has a DNS record. I'm pretty sure you're missing at least a top level domain (com, org, net, etc.).
I am going by this install instruction.
Possibly nothing needs to be changed or added to hosts or hostname because my DNS record takes care of it?
