    Are you having trouble receiving mail? or sending mail?

    Or do you just want to watch logs?
    tail -f /var/log/zimbra.log
    tail -f /opt/zimbra/log/mailbox.log

    Watch queues?
    /opt/zimbra/postfix/spool/
    lookup the postqueue and postsuper commands - for instance:
    Code:
    su - zimbra
    postqueue -p
    -The admin console has a gui to this.

    EDIT:
    Guessing maybe incoming trouble? (your 2nd post & that's the usual trouble people have after just setting up)

    Some key points:
    Code:
    dig mx domain.com
    dig any domain.com
    You can also use Pingability.com
    (If you don't feel comfortable posting your domain name, you can PM any employees/mods who respond to this post if you would like us to check.)

    Can you telnet to port 25 on that box? (from the outside - not any boxes on your lan)
    If not: Firewall or even your ISP/hosting provider blocking port 25?

    Do a tail -f /var/log/zimbra.log
    -Do you see the connection attempts?
    -Any errors there?
    -Check the differed queue

    If that appears ok, then tail -f /opt/zimbra/logs/mailbox.log do you see the mail showing up there?
    -If not, the next question would be in regards to your dns setup...does this box have both a private & public ip?
    Code:
    host `hostname`  <-- backticks not single quotes and use this command as is
    If behind a NAT you may need:
