    Default zimbra for the local network (lan) ?

    hey guys,

    is it possible to make zimbra work for the local domain? cause i've tried
    setting it up with the FQDN being mail.localhost which is what i've put in
    /etc/hosts to resolve to our local ip address in the lan (10.100.0.42).

    everything was starting up nicely but sending mails from the console (using the mail program) or from telnet 25 it seems like its sending the mails but later in the lost im seeing this error:

    "warning: do not list domain mail.localhost in BOTH virtual_mailbox_domains and relay_domains" and it seems like it bounces or queues the message somewhere.
    i cant tell whats wrong with it except for the user not getting mail. (local user
    on the system)


    thanks in advance,
    lir

    Default

    1. Setting up local DNS for local domain A host. example mydomain.com
    2. Setting up local DNS for MX record refer to host mydomain.com as mail server
    3. In your mail server put the dns to your local dns
    4. finish

    you can send and receive email from local LAN. Hope can solve your question

    thanks

    Before answer your question, pls answer this
    1. do you have a public domain ?
    2. do you have a IP public for your mail server machine ?
    3. do you have a mx record registered in your ISP DNS ?
    basicly you must all above to send and receive email from internet

    hope you get idea

    You need a Domain Name that's registered on a public DNS server, exactly the same as you would for any mail server. If you are behind a NAT device then you'll need a Split DNS. Please search the forums, these topics have been covered many times. You should aso read the Zimbra Documentation for the installation requirements.
