    Default [SOLVED] me.com Not sending, sitting in queue

    I've just been looking over our mail queues, and noticed that anything going to @me.com is sitting there. When I hover over it I get:

    "host or domain name not found. name service error for name=me.com. type=mx: host not found, try again"

    All other mail is fine, and I can resolve me.com no problem and also nslookup gives me the ip, etc.

    Kind of baffled...

    Sounds DNS'ish to me. From a shell on the zimbra console try "dig mx me.com" and check that you get lots of MX records appear, being able to resolve me.com is not a valid test becuase that's going to be the web server for the domain, not the mail server.

    Here's what comes back, 192.168.11.102 is one of our internal DNS servers.
    If I run it on yahoo.com or hotmail.com I get lots of replies.

    root@mail:~# dig mx me.com

    ; <<>> DiG 9.3.2-P2.3 <<>> mx me.com

    That would indicate, obviously, that i's not being resolved by your DNS server. I'd suggest trying an internet (your ISPs server perhaps) DNS server to see if that resolves correctly (it does for me) then check why your DNS server isn't working. Does your DNS server resolve other DNS requests correctly?

    So I added our ISP to the resolve.conf, and me.com resolves perfectly with the dig mx me.com command. I'll have to sort out what's up with our Windows DNS servers I guess!

    Thanks!
