    Default [SOLVED] sending/receiving mails confused

    Hello all,
    iam new in Zimbra mailserver and have some little problems with sending or receiving mails.

    Here are the main data.
    My domain name (fqdn): mailserver.sinsheim-wetter.de

    The hostname for the simbra server is: mailserver.sinsheim-wetter.de
    I have a reverse enrty thats works correct.

    My mail-domain is: sinsheim-wetter.de.Thats also the defaultdomain within Simbra and for using e-mails.

    ZMcontrol shows no errors ans all is running nice...at least it seems so, because i have a strange problem.

    In the MTA Seetings the given domainname is (webmail MTA hostname): sinsheim-wetter.de
    With this entry i can receive mails without problems, but sended mailsl doesnt work. Webmail shows " Your mail was send", but they never reach the Receipents.

    When i change the MTA hostname to mailserver.sinsheim-wetter.de , i can send mails, but now i canīt receive mails. I have tried all possible solutions, but i cant understand whats wrong here.

    When i start a simple mailserver like Mercury, all works fine and without any problems.

    Any ideas wehre i can search for a solution?

    Regards

    Thomas

    Welcome to the forums.

    Are you behind a router (i.e. does you server have a private IP)? If you are you'll need a Split DNS setup. You should also check your hosts file. To check your set-up run the following on your Zimbra server:

    Code:
    host `hostname`   <-- backticks not single quotes
    dig sinsheim-wetter.de mx
    dig sinsheim-wetter.de any
    Regards

    You will need to run a local DNS server so that Zimbra (actually Postfix) can resolve the server LAN IP via DNS, follow the Split DNS instructions in the link I posted above. You also didn't run the
    Code:
    host `hostname`
    command to check your host file.
    Regards

    Ho phoenix,

    yes i tried the documentation behind the link above, but it wont work right now, because it is
    for a RED HEAD LINUX, but i use SUSE 10.2.

    I could install bind, but there was many errors during ste setup. I dont undersatnd where i have to insert which hostname oder IP into the configs. Also its not clear that the nemaed.conf entries are additional to the exisiting named.conf, or stand alone, so that i hace to overwrite the exisiting named.conf.

    The results of the host command is here:

    mailserver:~ # host mailserver.sinsheim-wetter.de
    mailserver.sinsheim-wetter.de has address 194.231.187.137
    mailserver.sinsheim-wetter.de mail is handled by 100 sinsheim-wetter.de.


    Its heavy..but not impossible;-)

    Regards

    Thomas
