Ah, yes, I had left that out.  We had discussed that point in a
previous email.  However I don't think the domain should be left blank
for the installer.  Certainly not for an email server.

One of these days we should get together and create or update a
documentation page with all of the information on this topic all in
one place.  :-)  But there is already the fine Debian Reference
maintained by Osamu Aoki.  All it takes is time and that seems in less
supply every day.
