    Question Please help : Installation confirmation

    Dear Gurus of the Zimbra ,

    This is my first time posting here..

    I have installed zimbra collaboration suite on centos5 --> Release 4.5.8_GA_1394.RHEL5_20071002145535 CentOS5 FOSS edition

    And i have installed this on my LAN machine, which is NATed as well. I have setup SPLIT DNS as well. And i can send and receive emails, with attachements, internally and externally successfully.

    What i'd concern here that, each of the SPLIT DNS tutorial is different, and Im confused about it. And here it is :

    1. Ajcody-Hostname-DNS - Zimbra :: Wiki
    2. Split DNS - Zimbra :: Wiki
    3. Making Zimbra & BIND Work Together » Zimbra :: Blog

    For your info i have followed the tutorial from no.2 and the zimbra server is working good (that's what it seems from my opinion)

    And im going to install this for production later on, and remove my old email server which is running on Sun Solaris, which have caused a few problems.

    Below is the results from my Zimbra server checking, which i have followed from reading on this zimbra forum :

    cat /etc/hosts
    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    dig yourdomain.com mx
    dig yourdomain.com any
    host `hostname`


    cat /etc/hosts
    # Do not remove the following line, or various programs
    # that require network functionality will fail.
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    192.168.1.122 mail.themindgarden.com mail

    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    nameserver 192.168.1.122

    dig themindgarden.com mx

    mail.themindgarden.com mail is handled by 10 mail.themindgarden.com.mail.themindgarden.com.


    So, what im requesting here, could any of the zimbra Guru's check my zimbra configuration here, and advice me if there is any mistakes, or some configuration that i have missed, so that i can do it again in a proper way, which i would like to.

    Thank you

    Regards
    Muthu

    Why have you installed that version, it is old and it's no longer supported. You should install the current 6.x release.

    Those articles all say the same thing in slightly different ways.

    From the results you've posted your DNS settings all look fine.

    Hi Phoenix,

    you are great and thanks for the quick reply as well. Here Im in malaysia, and im hosting the site The Mind Garden | Mind Garden Book | Christina Chia in a datacenter. So my Boss is asking me to install Zimbra using 4.5.8 version, as he said this is stable version.

    Im not sure why my boss do not want to install the new version although i have let him know. Is there any significant points that i can use to persuade my boss to use the latest version of zimbra, that i need to know ?

    Thanks phoenix

    The main reason to upgrade (from my point of view) would be that the version you've installed isn't supported and any problems you may encounter you'd be asked to upgrade to a current release. There are a tone of new features in the current release, have a look at the product introduction on the main page at Zimbra offers Open Source email server software and shared calendar for Linux and the Mac
