    Default host issues

    well, where do I begin...

    The short question is:
    -why does zmhostname print out this hostname?
    Code:
    -n
    Facts (for the most part):
    -I had a working mail server that I needed to change to another domain.
    -Static IP directly connected to Internet. No LAN.
    -old domain was tospanama.com
    -new domain oxfordpanama.info but want to use mail.oxfordpanama.com (also own oxfordpanama.com, but it is another machine)
    -email server was working ok with mail.oxfordpanama.com after I made some changes in zimbra (don't ask me what), but there were a number of emails that being deferred with connection time out (to yahoo, gmail and hotmail) and mail transport unavailable messages
    -there were still remnants of tospanama.com in zimbra and the file system and I thought that could be a cause so I started changing stuff

    here's the output of what I currently have:
    Code:
     dig mail.oxfordpanama.com mx
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.4.2 <<>> mail.oxfordpanama.com mx

    Any ideas so that I won't have a mob at my desk all day...

    TIA!

    Default

    According to the output you've posted there is no NX record for the server. How did you change the server name within Zimbra or did you just change the hostname in the hosts file?

    BTW, your dig commands should be like this:

    Code:
    dig oxfordpanama.com mx
    dig oxfordpanama.com any
    You use the domain name not the FQDN of your server.
    Regards

    Default how i changed the hostname in zimbra

    Thanks for the reply!

    I changed the hostname in zimbra as described here: ZmSetServerName - Zimbra :: Wiki

    Code:
    /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsetservername -n mail.oxfordpanama.com
    but unfortunately, I found this article after I had changed the hostname in the hosts file.

    Code:
     dig oxfordpanama.com mx
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.4.2 <<>> oxfordpanama.com mx
