These results differ from your earlier post so you've now changed the DNS records to reflect your internal LAN IP addresses, correct? The output you've posted seems to be OK. First point, the host command you used earlier to check the IP address is incorrect - you should use backticks not single quotes or as the Split DNS article shows you can use this command:

Code:
host $(hostname)
Second point, your external DNS records show there to be no A record for the MX record - that needs fixing. Third point, what is the reason are these emails deferred? You'll need to look in the log files to find the answer to that, tail the log file and try to send another email and see the reason it gets deferred. Fourth point, have you disabled the firewall and AppArmor on your Zimbra server?
mail:~ # host $(hostname)
mail.sysdial.com has address 10.10.10.83

the hostname for my mail server is “mail”

in my external DNS I have the A record for Host “mail” Server as “mail.sysdial.com” XX.XX.XXX.28
then I have setup an mx record for “[10] mail.sysdial.com” does this mx record have to be changed to "[10] sysdial.com" ?

I am not sure if the A record you mentioned that I create should be for the domain “sysdial.com” and have the same IP address as above XX.XX.XXX.28

I do not have the firewall enabled for the Server and there is no AppAmor installed.

I have copied below the tail logs for the email being sent. I am able to receive email from all external domains. But the tail log indicates that my emails are having “connection timed out” or “connection timing out”
