    Have a look at this DNS thread - that should tell you what you need to know about setting your files. I'm assuming that you are using a local copy of BIND rather than public DNS host. Post some details of what you're doing if you still have problems.

    for some reason the zimbra installer either takes fqdn or takes hostname+resolv.conf search suffix default, then does an mx record against that fqdn. however, very few people set an mx record for the mx A record, its far more common to do it against the domain.

    try the dns lookup again, where you were trying, try
