I have been tinkering with the appliance demo
Release 6.0.7_GA_2513_UBUNTU8_64 UBUNTU8_64 NETWORK edition.
When I send mail within the internal domain, it does not get delivered.
We used a fake domain name for this installation.
And we do NOT have MX records in DNS for it. I was hoping that I could trick the system by using hosts files. Hosts files never let me down in the past with any other products.
I can see in the zimbra.log that the messages do not get delivered because:
.......dsn=4.4.3, status=deferred (Host or domain name not found. Name service error for name=ftl1vmlxzim01 type=A: Host not found, try again)
I do have these lines in the hosts file:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
Why can't it use the hosts file to get the IP address of ftl1vmlxzim01 ?
