    Default Need Help setting up family mail server

    Hi,

    I am trying to setup a family email server. My domain is hansenx6.com
    My setup is as follows:

    Domain name registered with netnation.ca. Their parent name servers are pointing the domain to my external ip address: 99.199.126.194 which i called dns.hansenx6.com and dns2.hansenx6.com.

    I have a router / firewall connected to my adsl modem. I have confirmed the ip address and it is also 99.199.126.194.

    I have my firewall forwarding port 25 to my mail server which is 192.168.1.150 and it's hostname is mail.hansenx6.com

    My dns server (inside the firewall) is 192.168.1.100 and my firewall is forwarding port 53 to the dns server. The dns server is running bind9 and i have setup A and mx.

    I have installed Zimbra on the mail.hansenx6.com server (running Ubuntu 8.04) and the install went fine. I have setup an account and i can email between local accounts. However, i can't receive email from outside.

    Is my setup flawed? Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks
    Mike

    Do not forward port 53 through your firewall it's unnecessary and could be a security risk.

    Please post the output of the following commands (run on your Zimbra server):

    Code:
    cat /etc/hosts
    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    dig hansenx6.com mx
    dig hansenx6.com any
    host `hostname`  <-- type that command exactly and use backticks not single quotes
    Regards
