    Default [SOLVED] Incoming msgs not being delivered

    Hi.
    Running FC5, 4.5.6_GA_1044.FC5_20070706162711 FC5 FOSS edition
    and finding a problem I can't run down by searching here.
    I can mail out as a user fine, and remote recipient gets message.
    But sending IN a new message, or replying to Zimbra user results in msgs being put in deferred queue.
    I have turned off AV/AS server, and done severa; zmcontrol stop/starts...
    No other service answering when i turn off Zimbra, and telnet 25...nothing answers.

    Any help, or point me to appropriate thread?
    Thanks very much,
    rick

    What does the following show (run on your server):

    Code:
    host `hostname`  <-- backticks not single quotes
    dig yourdomain.com MX
    dig yourdomain.com any

    I'm leaning toward DNS issue, too, but not sure how to fix it.
    (inside IP address is 10.0.0.1)
    (thanks)

    [root@smtp tuser]# host `hostname`
    smtp.creativelights.com has address 69.2.241.230

    Yes, it's a DNS problem. I guess this is a new install? As you're behind a NAT device (or firewall) you will need to install a local DNS server so that Zimbra (postfix) can resolve the local IP address of your server. Check the Split DNS setup in the wiki (or search the forums for 'DNS in a Nutshell'), it's fairly straightforward and you should be up and running in no time.
    Regards

    Thanks...yes, new install. Plus external DNS just got resolved this morning.
    Yecch. this one is messy.
    I've got a WinServer doing DNS over on that 192.168.150.xx address, so I'll look at setting that up properly.
    (My Windows admin is out of town, so this might be Tuesday, now.)

    Thanks Bill -
    have a good week,
    rick
    PS. I looked at that splitDNS a week ago, and was hoping that I wouldn't have to do it.

    Yup, you definitely want to use split dns

    The only other way would be to uncheck enable DNS lookups-but then you need to have a 'relay for external delivery'.
    Or the uglier messing with zimbraMailTransport...
    -but you have a DNS box internally so just don't.

    Thanks, gents.
    the nutshell article wasn't quite as useful as the wiki entry.
    But I followed the directions, and after restarting named and bind, my deferred msgs all flowed. Perfect.

    Demonstration for the customer begins Tuesday. wish us luck.

    Ah, I take it you decided to forgo waiting for your dns admin to come back.
    Even though you've already done it-there's also this: /blog/archives/2007/06/making_zimbra_bind_work_together_1.html

    Thanks mmorse - I did figure that I could just get the linux box to take care of itself. And it worked out fine. I have a second/virtual domain to add when we go live.
    I should be able to add another zone like this, for the second domain, right?

    Nutshell article had few typos, and the wiki article just seemed more streamlined.
    thanks,
    rick

    (now I need to find an answer on the clamav component being weird).

    The release of ClamAV in 4.5.6 is just plan bad. We're going to update it in 4.5.7 which is expected soon.
