In the CGP documentation, they generally use a specimen like “domain.dom” where a domain name should appear.  According to the documentation, “localhost =” and “mail host =” are default router records, with nothing to the right of the equal signs, and that’s how we’re set up.  However, lately, I see log entries like this:

`13:47:44.361 1 HTTPA-000394([]) failed to switch to the target TLS domain 'localhost'. Error Code=unknown secondary domain name
The error makes me wonder:  Should the records actually read “localhost =” and “mailhost =”? Cheers,

No, because that message indicates that the client was trying to set up a TLS connection using the hostname "localhost" for the server using SNI ( or using the HTTP 1.1 "Host" request header,  but "localhost" is not a name which the server recognizes as one of its own. The router does not act on that hostname, it only acts on routing addresses of email messages and real-time signals.
