    OK, MX records are what point to your mail server and are in DNS. How do you resolve PCs on your LAN?

    It is easier if you use a DNS server to resolve addresses. Follow the instructions I posted earlier and set-up DNS with the correct details for your server. Then reinstall zimbra, that should see you OK.

    PC's are resolved through DHCP with only my server running with a static IP. Have seen the post about DNS & MX records but i need to know which file to edit and in which location it's found.

    The DHCP service doesn't resolve IP address on a LAN, it's DNS that does that. I guess from what you're saying that your DHCP server is allocating dynamic IP addresses to the PCs on the LAN and with a gateway address pointing to your 10.0.0.3 server. Would that be roughly what's happening?

    You need to install BIND9 and make the configurations to the files mentioned in the instructions that I gave you the link for earlier.

    Roughly yes but precisely i have PC's connected as a windows workgroup with DHCP allocating dynamic IP addresses. My server will be used as a mail & file server so i set it up with a static IP address. Actually my router is my DHCP server.

    Ok, i need to install BIND8 (it comes with FC4 instead of BIND9). Will try that and keep you posted if successful or not. Thanks for the help.

    The files i can find in the directories stipulated in the DNS in a nutshell post are :

    localdomain.zone
    localhost.zone
    named.broadcast
    named.ca
    named.ip6.local
    named.local
    named.zero
    slaves

    Should i enter the following information in the file localdomain.zone ? :

    $TTL 3D
    @ IN SOA serv.amemattex.com. (
    2005110200
    8H ; refresh, seconds
    2H ; retry, seconds
    4W ; expire, seconds
    1D ) ; minimum, seconds
    ;
    NS serv ; Inet Address of name server
    MX 10 serv.amemattex.com. ; Primary Mail Exchanger
    ;
    serv A 10.0.0.3
    mail CNAME serv ; CNAME for a common nickname
    otherhost A 1.2.3.5 ; another host, for example
    www CNAME otherhost ; with a nickname

    Any quick help would be greatly appreciated. Am no DNS guru as you may have realised.

    I've upgraded BIND and still can't find the file domain.com.

    Ok, if i understood i should create this file (domain.com) and edit the named.conf file in order to point to it ?

    Modified by MX records and that fixed it. Thank you for your help again. Have learned a great deal on DNS.

    Now, will tweak the system at will.
