    Default Can't send system emails

    First of all, this is my first post here, so hello to everybody who reads me

    I've just installed a Zimbra OS version on a CentOS 5.5 machine, and I have a little problem.

    I can send emails perfectly to and external domains from any account I've created, but there are some emails that i can't send. What I'm trying to do is simple, just in a terminal:

    echo “This was a test” | sendmail -f root

    This generates a response to that says:

    <>: mail for loops back to myself

    The problem is that root account points to instead

    My configuration looks like this:


    cat /etc/hosts
    # Do not remove the following line, or various programs

    # that require network functionality will fail. localhost.localdomain localhost server2


    dig mx


    ; <<>> DiG 9.3.6-P1-RedHat-9.3.6-4.P1.el5_4.2 <<>> mx

    ;; global options: printcmd

    server2 14400 IN A ; Main IP

    22-22-22-22 14400 IN A ; Secondary Ip (Failover)

    cat /etc/aliases


    The server that has installed Zimbra is the only that can send this emails to root, the rest of the servers i have send this ones normally.

    This server only have one domain:

    Anyone have an idea of what is happening here? All comments are welcome and apreciated.

    Thank you!
