    Default No incoming or outgoing e-mail

    Hey all,

    I have Zimbra installed in an Ubuntu Breezy VServer and it's working great.
    I'm trying to duplicate that install at home and I'm getting stuck on one problem.

    The install went successfully and Zimbra works fine. I can do everything except send or receive e-mails.

    These are the log entries that come up;

    /var/log/mail.info
    Code:
    May 20 21:19:58 mail postfix/smtp[25332]: connect to 127.0.0.1[127.0.0.1]: server dropped connection without sending the initial SMTP greeting (port 10024)
    May 20 21:19:58 mail postfix/smtp[25332]: 6A0061CAC59: to=, relay=none, delay=-59, status=deferred (connect to 127.0.0.1[127.0.0.1]: server dropped connection without sending the initial SMTP greeting)
    /var/log/messages
    Code:
    May 20 21:53:18 mail amavis[24417]: DENIED ACCESS from IP 192.168.1.100, policy bank ''
    My config files are as Zimbra created them during the install using all defaults.

    I've searched these forums and the net for answers and it seems that if my box had a public IP it would make things a lot easier as I didn't have this problem at work.

    I am behind a firewall and using NAT, so box has local IP, mx record is a public IP. I think I'm on the right track here, but I'm not too sure where to take it.

    Thanks,

    Craig

    Hi

    Welcome to the forums.

    If you're behind a NAT router and you have a public IP address with MX records hosted outside your LAN you need a local DNS server and a split-DNS config. Have a look in the wiki, there's a description of how to set it up in there.

    You'll also need to the the 'use DNS lookups' checked on the admin gui/Global Settings/MTA tab. This is all assuming that you want your server accessible from the internet (Port 25 should also be forwarded through the NAT router) rather than just relaying through an ISP mail server.
    Regards

    Sorry if this sounds real n00b but I've never actually set up a DNS server before. I've got a computer set up with BIND and what's said in the wiki makes sense, but is there anyone who could give me a sample config?

    Thanks,

    Craig

    Sorry, after a bit of playing that was quite simple.

    It's all working great now.
