    Welcome to the forums.

    I'd suggest you download and install the latest 4.5.9 version of Zimbra.

    Do you have coorect DNS A & MX records set plus a correct /etc/hosts file? What else do you have in the install logs?
    Regards

    Thanks for the reply
    I have been using linux for about 2years now. Just trying to convert all my windows boxes over.

    whats the fastest site to get the latest version? yours?

    I look into the /var/log/ and there doesn't seems to be a zimbra.log
    I need to do some reading on MX and DNS lookups for sure...little new

    I think part of my problem is that i am running it of dyndns (notyours.xxxxx.com)
    Not sure if that a fully routable domain name.

    etc/hosts file

    127.0.0.1 localhost localhost
    192.168.1.16 mail.notyours.xxxxxx.com mail

    # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
    ::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
    fe00::0 ip6-localnet
    ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
    ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
    ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
    ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

    My system
    Althon 64 X2 4600
    2GB dual channel ddr2 running at 800MHZ
    250WD drive
    8600gs

    Ubuntu 6.06 running Zimbra on virtual machine

    Thanks in advance one again

    The hosts file looks OK but you should disable ipv6 (plus any firewall and/or SElinux) on the server. Any of the sourceforge sites should be fast enough for downloading the OSS version. You should also make sure that your VM has enough RAM allocated to it, 1GB (at least) for testing and more for production.

    You'll need a local DNS server to point to your LAN IP address (check the Split DNS article in the wiki), although the wiki article is RedHat specific it should give you the idea of what's needed. There's also a couple of forum threads about NS in Ubuntu, IIRC.

    I assume you're using dyndns.org because you're on a dynamic IP(?), generally that shouldn't cause you any problems but might because some servers reject mail from server on dynamic IPs.

    I forgot to add, when you've got the DNS set-up you can check it's configuration with the following:

    Code:
    host `hostname`  <-- type 'as is' with backticks not single quotes
    dig yourdomain.com mx
    dig yourdomain.com any

    Ok, i got the installer to start and everything looks gravy until this ----

    Create Domain: [mydomin.net]
    MX: mail.mydomina.net (12.192.87.159)
    MX: domainhostingsite.com (68.142.224.244)
    MX: domainhostingsite.com (66.196.126.37)

    Interface: 192.168.1.20
    Interface: 127.0.0.1


    DNS ERROR - none of the MX records for mydomain.net
    resolve to this host
    It is suggested that the MX record resolve to this host
    Re-Enter domain name? [Yes]

    zone file--

    // replace example.com with your domain name. do not forget the . after the domain name!
    // Also, replace ns1 with the name of your DNS server
    // Do not modify the following lines!
    2006081401
    28800
    3600
    604800
    38400
    )

    // Replace the following line as necessary:
    // ns1 = DNS Server name
    // mta = mail server name
    // example.com = domain name
    mail.opensourceeffects.net. IN MX 10 12.192.87.159
    opensourceeffects.net. IN MX 10 192.168.1.20
    mail.opensourceeffects.net. IN A 10 12.192.87.159

    // Replace the IP address with the right IP addresses.
    www IN A 192.168.1.16
    mta IN A 192.168.1.20
    ns1 IN A 192.168.1.20



    What seems to be my prob?

    thanks in advance

    The problem is fairly straightforward, you don't have (as far as I can see) any DNS records pointing at your LAN IP for the Zimbra server. I assume from the 192.168.x.x address in your post above that your server is behind a NAT device, you'll need to set-up a Split DNS so we can resolve the internal address. There are some details on an install on Ubuntu in the forum if you search for it, there's also this tutorial that should give you the details.
    Regards

    thank you for your quick response,

    I have zimbra installed! I can send outgoing mail but i can't recieve mail. I'm in the process of reconfiguring my dns with the correct mx record. Its funny that the second link you sent me was the same one i followed to install zimbra . I guess i am stuck on the split dns part. I'm assuming that all incoming mail is getting bounced off my router because of incorrect dns. Any help you can give me with configureing my dns server to correctly resolve my MX record would be great. Once again I think this is one of the best forums i've joined. A++++.

    Thanks once again.

    If the zone file you've posted aboce is for your local DNS server then you don't have the A & MX records pointing at the same server:

    Code:
    mail.opensourceeffects.net. IN MX 10 12.192.87.159
    
    mta IN A 192.168.1.20
    That doesn't match the set-up in the split dns article. Is that your real domain name in there? If not what is it so I can check your external records from here.
    Regards

    OK, so I see it is your correct domain name. That points to a public IP address, for the split DNS to work you must point it to the LAN IP of the Zimbra server. Just for my confirmation, you do have a local DNS server set-up on your LAN don't you? That is the one you're making these modifications to, isn't it?
    Regards

    correct.

    I have bind9 running on the same ubuntu server and my mail server. I'm almosty ready to start pulling my hair out . Am I close to getting this right? I'm at the point where i just want to hook my mail server directly to my public IP adrress.

    Once again I think You've been great A++++
