    Default email from zimbra@localhost.localdomain

    I am getting quite a bit of email from zimbra@localhost.localdomain and it's going into the deferred queue because the lookup on localhost.localdomain is coming up with an incorrect address.

    [root@zimbra zimbra]# nslookup localhost.localdomain
    Server: 192.168.254.30
    Address: 192.168.254.30#53

    Non-authoritative answer:
    Name: localhost.localdomain
    Address: 208.67.219.40

    It's trying to use 208.67.219.40 to send the email. Could anyone tell me what it's using the wrong ip address for localhost.localdomain and can I set it somewhere in the zimbra config? 192.168.254.30 isn't right either but that's something I could work with at least.

    Default

    mysql_bind_address = localhost
    zimbra_zmprov_default_soap_server = localhost

    are the only ones that come up for localhost.

    I've looked through the server config as well and it'd much the same. Nothing regarding localhost.localdomain.

    What's in your /etc/hosts file? Your nslook should only return the IP of the loopback adapter - 127.0.0.1. Are you using a split-DNS with your set-up?

    Nope, no split DNS. I've got an internal DNS server that is running on the .30 address above. The zimbra server is running on .32.

    [root@zimbra ~]# cat /etc/hosts
    # Do not remove the following line, or various programs
    # that require network functionality will fail.
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost zimbra.collectivedata.local zimbra

    That /etc/hosts file is wrong, it should be in the format:
    Code:
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost 
    192.168.x.x zimbra.collectivedata.local zimbra
    as outlined in the Zimbra Quick Start guide.

    That's fixed. nslookup still shows the 208.67.219.40 address as the non-authoratative answer.

    This 'nslookup localhost.localdomain' give you the public IP? Did you reboot?

    What does this show?
    Code:
     host `hostname`
    They're backticks in there not single quotes.

    I'm not familiar with host this so here are the results of the variations I tried.

    [root@zimbra ~]# host this `hostname`
    ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

    [root@zimbra ~]# host this `localhost`
    -bash: localhost: command not found
    this has address 208.67.219.40
    Host this not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

    [root@zimbra ~]# host this
    this has address 208.67.219.40
    Host this not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

    My mistake, I don't know how I managed to make a mess of that command. I've edited the command above try again with the format above.
