    Default Cannot send out messages

    I am a newbie at this and I thought I had everything going well. We are receiving messages just fine, but when I try to send an email out, I get the following error-

    method: SendMsgRequest
    msg: system failure: Unable to send message
    code: service.FAILURE

    I am on ZCS 6.0 on RHEL 5 virtualized in VMware ESXi 4.1. I have checked all of the settings I could think of, and even tried some troubleshooting techniques I found elsewhere such as making sure ports are open on the firewall and such.

    If anyone has any ideas on what I could do, I would appreciate it. Thank you everyone!

    You need to take a look in the MTA log files to see what the exact errors is.

    I actually got it working, don't know what exactly it was (may have been just time for the DNS to process or something). Thank you for the response.
