    Unhappy SMTP host is set to localhost.

    We had a major DNS failure, after completely rebuilding the DNS servers. I am having issues.

    When I click on the "Check MX" button in the admin page I keep getting the dialog box saying the

    SMTP host is set to localhost. localhost host was not found in the MX records.

    Zimbra pulls up fine, but is not receiveing email.

    The A records are set up the same, well ...... obviously not. but the MX records are correct. Accept zmail will not take incomming mail.

    Why do you think you'll receive mail without an DNS A record|? You're going to have to give some information about your configuration, go to the Split DNS wiki article and run all the commands from the 'Verify....' section of that article.

    Huh? The DNS records are there and the MX is listed correctly. ANd the server has an A record, which is functioning fine, because I can get tot the zimbra fine anywhere on the internet. But the there is obviously something there that zimbra does not like.

    This is still an out of the box installation, the servers have not been touched. This is only the aftermath of a serious DNS failure. nothing has changed except where the DNS records are located....and the fact I had to manually punch them back in. Which makes me believe there is something I left out.

    The MX records for the domain is set to the Zimbra server.

    Perhaps it's my understanding of your use of English but that implies to me that the MX records are there (and correct) and the A record is either not there or incorrect.

    I was implying, although I have the MX and A Records set up (what appears to be correct), Zimbra acts like it is not.
