    The answer to your question is all over the forums: you have no valid DNS A & MX records pointing to your Zimbra server. Please search the forums and wiki for "split dns" and follow the set-up instructions, there's also details on how to check your records are correct.
    Regards

    Welcome to the forums

    Please check /var/log/zimbra.log for errors on why ZCS is not starting ... If you would also post the following it would help us
    Code:
    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol -v
    cat /etc/hosts
    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    dig yourdomainname mx
    dig yourdomainname any
    host `hostname` <- note backticks and not single quotes

    As pheonix said:
    This is most likely a problem with your DNS A & MX records.
    As uxbod said:
    Please look at the following commands and execute them one by one.
    Please tell us what the commands output (copy-paste would be ideal) so we can assist you.
    su - zimbra
    cat /etc/hosts
    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    dig yourdomainname mx
    dig yourdomainname any
    host `hostname`

    You have an invalid A record, it should point to the LAN IP of your Zimbra server. Please read the Split DNS article in the wiki and follow the instructions there.

    BTW, when providing the requested information please format the output as I've done in your post above so it's easier to read and supply all the information you were asked for.
    Regards

    Go to the wiki link I gave you earlier and enter the words 'split dns' in the search field, you'll find what you need.
