    Default Incoming Mail Problem

    Hello Just wondering if anyone could give me any Ideas. I can Send mail from internal account to the outside world but cannot receive email from internal or external accounts not sure what is the problem if I go to the admin console my mx record passes check. I do not see my Private ip in the "dig my.domain all" only my external IP do I need to add into it somehow.

    Go to the Split DNS article and read what's necessary for you DNS, you can confirm your settings by running all the commands in the 'Verify....' section of that article.

    OK I had seen this thread already but I am using the Zimbra Virtual Appliance and the commands do not seem to work properly. I am doing an apt-get update and apt-get upgrade not sure if that will work but I cannot run apt-get install bind9 says it is not available that dnsutils and do not see /etc/bind folder on my server.

    OK have tried this but when I go to restart dnsmasq I get "dnsmasq: failed to create listening socket: Address already in use" Any Ideas of what I may have done wrong.

    You don't run dnsmasq if you have BIND installed.

    Ok did not see the last part of the DNSMASQ oops ok still having some issues with commands. I am not a linux guy so I am just not sure what I should do here are my /etc/bind/named.conf and /etc/bind/named.conf.options files could you let me know how to modify these also if I try the command /etc/init.d/named start it says file or directory not found.

    NAMED.CONF
    // This is the primary configuration file for the BIND DNS server named.
    //
    // Please read /usr/share/doc/bind9/README.Debian.gz for information on the
    // structure of BIND configuration files in Debian, *BEFORE* you customize
    // this configuration file.
    //
    // If you are just adding zones, please do that in /etc/bind/named.conf.local

    include "/etc/bind/named.conf.options";

    // prime the server with knowledge of the root servers
    zone "." {
    type hint;
    file "/etc/bind/db.root";
    };

    // be authoritative for the localhost forward and reverse zones, and for
    // broadcast zones as per RFC 1912

    zone "localhost" {
    type master;
    file "/etc/bind/db.local";
    };



    NAMED.CONF.OPTIONS
    ptions {
    directory "/var/cache/bind";

    // If there is a firewall between you and nameservers you want
    // to talk to, you might need to uncomment the query-source
    // directive below. Previous versions of BIND always asked
    // questions using port 53, but BIND 8.1 and later use an unprivileged
    // port by default.

    // query-source address * port 53;

    // If your ISP provided one or more IP addresses for stable
    // nameservers, you probably want to use them as forwarders.
    // Uncomment the following block, and insert the addresses replacing
    // the all-0's placeholder.

    // forwarders {
    // 0.0.0.0;
    // };

    auth-nxdomain no; # conform to RFC1035
    listen-on-v6 { any; };
    };

    Details of what goes in the config files is in the Split DNS article, you also need to enter the IP address of a couple of DNS servers that you wish to use as 'forwarders' i.e. the servers that will resolve external DNS requests for you.
