    Default Deferred Mail

    I have recently installed Zimbra on a test server. The installation was successful and all services appear to be running. I can access the administration console and can access the web client. When I test sending mail from one Zimbra account to another it takes an inordinate amount of time to receive the email and appears to be getting deferred. I am unable to send any email outside the domain. There is an MX and A record for the server that is resolvable from the outside and inside. The status message on the deferred email says that it timed out and that the IP address of origin is 127.0.0.1. Shouldn't that IP address be the actual IP address of the server, rather than the local loopback? If so, what should I do?

    Thanks for the help.

    Take a look at your hosts file.

    Default Hosts file

    Here is my hosts file. I am running Mac OS X Server.

    ##
    # Host Database
    #
    # localhost is used to configure the loopback interface
    # when the system is booting. Do not change this entry.
    ##
    127.0.0.1 localhost
    255.255.255.255 broadcasthost
    ::1 localhost

    You should have a look at the Zimbra Quick Start Guide or search the forums, this has been covered many times.

    The /etc/hosts file should be:
    Code:
    127.0.0.1      localhost.localdomain   localhost
    192.168.x.x    name.yourdomain.com name
    Obviously substitute your servers LAN IP for 192.168.x.x and 'name.yourdomain.com' should be the FQDN of your Zimbra server and you need DNS A & MX records pointing to it.

    Default elaborate

    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    192.168.x.x name.yourdomain.com name


    i am a bit confused about setting up..
    my server say is say aaa
    my domain name is bbb
    is this the way to write it.

    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost (do i leave this exactly like this)
    192.168.x.x aaa.bbb.com aaa

    or should i type

    127.0.0.1 localhost.bbb localhost
    192.168.x.x aaa.bbb.com aaa

    tks

    Your first example is the correct one as I've already detailed above,you can find details in the Zimbra Quick Start Installation Guide.
