    Default Zimbra installations hanging

    Hello all,

    I am new to the site and to linux! I am trying to setup a Centos server with emailing capabilities using virtualbox for learning purposes. I wan to set up Zimbra with split DNS to be able to send and receive emails from other domains, I already setup MX records with dyn dns.
    I started the installation and its hanging for almost 4 hours now in the bellow screen:

    DNS ERROR resolving MX for mail.alep11.com
    It is suggested that the domain name have an MX record configured in DNS
    Change domain name? [Yes] yes
    Create domain: [mail.alep11.com]

    What did I do wrong?

    The dig commands you are using are not correct and I'll say this again, go to the SPlit DNS article and check your configuration against the examples shown there and then run all the commands in the 'Verify....' section of that article to show if your DNS is correctly configured.
    Regards
