    Default Mac OSX 10 Intel, Send/Receive mail

    Hello,

    I am picking my way through installing Zimbra 4.5 on a Intel, Mac Mini, with 2 gigs of ram. This is just a test run to see if I can install this, I am not very strong with command line stuff, but given clear instructions I can do Okay.

    I have been able to launch the admin console, and create an account. But I can't Send/Receive mail.

    I have turned OSX firewall off temporarily. and I believe that my dns is set up correctly. At least it does resolve to my test domain and that it turn points to my server.

    When I do a port scan of the server, port 25 seems like it is NOT open. Even if with the firewall off.

    if I "tail" the log I do not see anything that looks like incoming connections, but there does seem to be something that looks like postfix trying to send mail but timing out.

    Jan 27 09:14:59 todd-geists-computer-2 postfix/smtp[29515]: connect to mx1.balanced.spunky.mail.dreamhost.com[208.97.132.47]: Operation timed out (port 25)
    Is there anything else I am missing. Could there be a problem with Postfix?

    Thanks

    Todd

    Default

    Do you have another MTA running? How about the firewall?

    What does zmcontrol status return?

    I am not sure how to check for another MTA. This is a clean Brand New Mac Mini. I know that I Made sure to turn OFF Personal Web Sharing. The only service that I turned on is Apple Remote Desktop.

    does that give you any ideas?

    Thanks

    Did you set up your hosts file? (Do a search on that, or go to the wiki)

    how about:
    telnet mx1.balanced.spunky.mail.dreamhost.com 25

    Default Couldn't find anything that made sense

    I did a search for Host File in both the forum and the wiki, but I didn't find anything that made sense to me.

    What is the purpose of the Hosts File? Why isn't setting it up handled by the Setup scripts?

    Thanks

    Default another clue?

    When I go to Mail Queues in the Admin Console I get an error

    Message: system failure: exception during auth {RemoteManager: 69-12-178-35.dsl.static.sonic.net->zimbra@69-12-178-35.dsl.static.sonic.net:22}

    Not sure what this means, but I think it related...

    Different Problem-likely related.

    The hosts file is what allows the computer to know what localhost is.

    Please take a look here: UnknownHostException - how should /etc/hosts look like?

    And insure that your hosts file looks like that.

    How did the telnet thing work out?

    Didn't try the telnet thing... What will that tell me?

    I changed the host file and restarted the machine. But I am still getting the error. hmmm I just saw I may not have put FQDN in the host file. I will check...

    But in the meantime... Do I need to re-install Zimbra after the Host File change? Or just re-start it?

    Thanks

    Well, we still havn't established that is the only problem. . . so i dunno.

    Just to clairify:
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    205.250.054.1 mail.domain.com mail

    Also, make sure SELinux is off.

    the Telnet thing will tell you if 1) your DNS is working and 2) if your MTA is online.
