I got another error while trying to setup mirroring:

An error occurred while starting mirroring.

The server network address "TCP://SC-7y2dh80.scbfdom.com:5022" can not be reached or does not exist. Check the network address name and reissue the command. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 1418)

How can I fix this?

First try to PING SC-7y2dh80.scbfdom.com

If it responds then make sure your port is assigned properly at that address.  Also, make sure any firewalls/routers at that address have the port open.
