    Default Help Setting Up Test Server

    Hello All,

    I currently have my email hosted offsite by another service provider and I need some help setting up Zimbra to function as a test email server in order to bring mail in-house. I cannot use my real domain as it is already receiving mail there.

    I have never setup an email server before.
    I have zimbra installed and running on an FC4 box on my internal network with a FQDN on my network (monarch.scdom1.xxxx.com)
    I have a MX record setup with dyndns.org (scare.dnsalias.net) that points to my WAN Ip address with an IpCop firewall that I can do port redirection/forwarding with. How should i configure Zimbra to work with this dns service so that I can receive mail from outside the domain?

    Thanks for any help.

    For now you can just configure your mail domain to be: scare.dnsalias.net

    Point the Mx record to the Zimbra host and pass port 25 through the firewall.
