    ok that is what you are pointing to?
    [root@test /]# cat /etc/hosts
    # Do not remove the following line, or various programs
    # that require network functionality will fail.
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    192.168.21.75 mail.test.alghurair.com mail

    Okay, so your named file should be like
    Code:
    @ IN SOA test.alaghurair.com. hostmaster.test.alghurair.com. (
    10118 ; Serial
    43200 ; Refresh
    3600 ; Retry
    3600000 ; Expire
    2592000 ) ; Minimum
    ; Define the nameservers and the mail servers
    IN NS mail
    mail IN A 192.168.21.75
    IN MX 10 mail
    you do not need to specify the FQDN for the MX record as it is within the same domain. alaghurair.com will be appended when mail is resolved back.

    Ok. The named file should therefore be db.alghurair.com and should have these entries
    Code:
    @ IN SOA alaghurair.com. hostmaster.alghurair.com. (
    10118 ; Serial
    43200 ; Refresh
    3600 ; Retry
    3600000 ; Expire
    2592000 ) ; Minimum
    ; Define the nameservers and the mail servers
    IN NS test
    test IN A 192.168.21.75
    IN MX 10 test
    that means the server test.alghurair.com will provide both DNS and ZCS services for the domain alaghurair.com. /etc/resolv.conf should point to
    Code:
    nameserver 192.168.21.75
