      You need to be really careful with changing the SMTP banner as it is used by many sites as part of their spam trapping techniques.

      If you do change it, make sure that it is changed to a name that resolves correctly on the internet. domain.com will not always resolve correctly or in a way that is acceptable to others. It should always be host.domain.com - for example mail.domain.com - and ideally should match your MX records and the reverse DNS on your IP address.
