    I'm also a newbie.... But I would suggest that you check connectivity to the remote host on port 25. (telnet 25).

    telnet server.domain.com:25

    check your global (and the individual server) mta settings in the admin console
    post what it says for webmail MTA & relay MTA for external delivery
    (is box at a company such as godaddy? -they have an outbound relay mta you must use (many isp's do as well)

    post the contents of your /etc/hosts file

    enable DNS lookups in the admin console-it's a checkbox

    do a dig mx domain.com

    Hi..

    Here is the details on the global settings in the Admin console:

    Webmail MTA hostname : localhost
    Relay MTA : blank
    MTA trusted Network : blank
    Enable DNS lookups : checked

    The reply about telnet would be the solution. You don't have access from the Zimbra machine out to another mail server. That's why it's timing out.

    When an MTA sends mail it looks up the MX record out of DNS to see where it should go and then connects to the machine to send the message.

    SMTP is TCP based so you should be able to use telnet to port 25 (the SMTP port) and get a connection. This when this times out it's a sign that there is no route. Normally a router or firewall config issue.

    You can use the dig command to find the MX record of the reciever.
