    Were they run on the zimbra server? Yes!
    I didn't know I had to run them from somewhere else, but now I did it using my local terminal:

    dig domain.net any
    Code:
    chodid@maulwurf:~$ dig domain.net any
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.7.0-P1 <<>> domain.net any
    ;; global options: +cmd

    If those do look good, then I have to apologize, sorry for taking up so much of your time with such a stupid mistake. Next time i'll know better. That also should explain why it did work even though it looked wrong.
    But thanks a lot for your help, even though it was my fault all that time it definately gave me a better understanding of the area.

    So were the results above run on the Zimbra server or another machine?

    The results above were run on another machine (my local desktop), the results that I posted before that were run on the zimbra machine.

    You should be getting the same results from the Zimbra machine as the ones you've got on the alternative machine. Could you answer the questions I asked earlier?

    Sorry, of course I can, I got a bit over exited and thought that that this was resolved with me getting results on another machine.

    1. is this server on a public IP (the 95.x.x.x shown in this thread)?
    Yes, thats the public IP
    2. your resolv.conf has the 95.x.x.x as it's DNS server, is that correct?
    resolv.conf - yes
    Code:
    Nameserver 95.XXX.XX.XX
    3. when you ran the dig commands were they run on the Zimbra server?
    The dig commands without output were run on the zimbra server
    4. just out of interest, which operating system is this?
    ubuntu 8.04
    5. have you disabled selinx/apparmor and the firewall on this server?
    if it's not disabled by default then no. I didn't change anything on the firewall, should I? If so - how?
    6. is this server actually behind any firewall or NAT router?
    I don't exactly know, it's a Xen based virtual Server, is there a way I can find that out myself or should I ask the provider?
    7. is the Zimbra server currently up and all services running?
    No, the zimbra server isn't running, I've got a problem with that as well - during the discussion of how to solve that problem the DNS problem was noticed.

    Best regards
    Phil
