    Default [SOLVED] DNS lookups for my trusted networks

    I'm trying to send emails from the internal network to a mailbox which is hosted on the Zimbra server. But the emails are bounced with the following message:

    Host or domain
    name not found. Name service error for name=source.my.domain.com type=A: Host not found
    The following Protocol checks are activated in the config:
    reject_invalid_hostname
    reject_non_fqdn_hostname
    reject_non_fqdn_sender

    When I send the same email to an external recipient outside of Zimbra and our networks, the email is accepted. The problem only occurs when sending to a mailbox on our Zimbra server.

    I wonder why Zimbra checks the A record of the sending host, and is it possible to turn off DNS lookups for hosts which are part of the MTA trusted networks?

    It's a postfix requirement. Have you set-up a Split DNS? If you haven't then you need one if your behind a NAT router or firewall, if you have then go to that article and run all the commands in the 'Verify...' section to check your settings.

    Thanks for you quick reply. Yes - this is a DNS problem. But I found out that it's the DSN which is discarded, since the sender domain doesn't have any A records for this host which sent the emails.

    The original problem was an alias domain. Emails couldn't be accepted for this alias domain, so postfix generate a DSN. I have fixed the original problem.

    Thanks for you help!
