    Default [SOLVED] installation successful, cannot recieve mail

    ive succesfully installed zimbra and asked my registrar to change their DNS records to:

    Code:
    mail.adhocracymgt.com. A xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    mail.adhocracymgt.com. MX 0 mail.adhocracymgt.com.
    adhocracymgt.com. MX 0 mail.adhocracymgt.com.
    do i have to setup bind on my server?

    i cannot recieve mail so i think it might be DNS.

    any suggestions???

    Yes, there's a search function at the top of this page. This is a community help forum, someone will get to you when they can, please don't post 1hr after your original post and demand help.

    Tell us what you've done to debug the problem?

    From this comment I'd guess you are behind a NAT router? If that's the case the search the forums and wiki (link at the top of this page) for Split DNS and implement that.

    None taken.

    I did give you the hint to the problem in my last post, Split DNS if you're behind a NAT router - are you?

    Default split dns

    i'm following the Split DNS in the Wiki link you have me.

    This is on RHEL and the named.conf includes options and local i think, but on ubuntu, which i'm on, i have 3 file, named.conf, named.conf.options and named.conf.local

    which one should i edit in place of named.conf

    Currently my named.conf looks like this (before i did split dns)
    Code:
    include "/etc/bind/named.conf.options";
    
    // prime the server with knowledge of the root servers
    zone "." {
            type hint;
            file "/etc/bind/db.root";
    };
    
    // be authoritative for the localhost forward and reverse zones, and for
    // broadcast zones as per RFC 1912
    
    zone "localhost" {
            type master;
            file "/etc/bind/db.local";
    };
    
    zone "127.in-addr.arpa" {
            type master;
            file "/etc/bind/db.127";
    };
    
    zone "0.in-addr.arpa" {
            type master;
            file "/etc/bind/db.0";
    };
    
    zone "255.in-addr.arpa" {
            type master;
            file "/etc/bind/db.255";
    
    };
    
    // zone "com" { type delegation-only; };
    // zone "net" { type delegation-only; };
    
    // From the release notes:
    //  Because many of our users are uncomfortable receiving undelegated answers
    //  from root or top level domains, other than a few for whom that behaviour
    //  has been trusted and expected for quite some length of time, we have now
    //  introduced the "root-delegations-only" feature which applies delegation-only
    //  logic to all top level domains, and to the root domain.  An exception list
    //  should be specified, including "MUSEUM" and "DE", and any other top level
    //  domains from whom undelegated responses are expected and trusted.
    // root-delegation-only exclude { "DE"; "MUSEUM"; };
    
    include "/etc/bind/named.conf.local";
    named.conf.local is
    Code:
    //
    // Do any local configuration here
    //
    
    // Consider adding the 1918 zones here, if they are not used in your
    // organization
    //include "/etc/bind/zones.rfc1918";
    
    zone "mail.adhocracymgt.com" {
            type master;
            file "/etc/bind/zones/mail.adhocracymgt.com.db";
            };
    
    zone "50.87.76.in-addr.arpa" {
            type master;
            file "/etc/bind/zones/rev.1.168.192.in-addr.arpa";
    };
    and named.conf.options look like
    Code:
    options {
            directory "/var/cache/bind";
    
            // If there is a firewall between you and nameservers you want
            // to talk to, you might need to uncomment the query-source
            // directive below.  Previous versions of BIND always asked
            // questions using port 53, but BIND 8.1 and later use an unprivileged
            // port by default.
    
            // query-source address * port 53;
    
            // If your ISP provided one or more IP addresses for stable
            // nameservers, you probably want to use them as forwarders.
            // Uncomment the following block, and insert the addresses replacing
            // the all-0's placeholder.
    
             forwarders {
             66.75.160.63;
             66.75.160.64;
     };
    
            auth-nxdomain no;    # conform to RFC1035
            listen-on-v6 { any; };
    };

                    IN      MX 10   mail.adhocracymgt.com
    my domain's dns records at the registrars servers are

    Code:
    mail.adhocracymgt.com. IN A 76.87.50.202
    mail.adhocracymgt.com. IN MX 0 mail.adhocracymgt.com.
    adhocracymgt.com. IN MX 0 mail.adhocracymgt.com.

    is my zone file correct?

    ok so i followed the split DNS tutorial, and nslookup doesn't resolve anything, just throws me an error. The ubuntu link you have me is for a mail server on the DMZ of the network. Is it safe to install zimbra on a DMZ server?
