Hi All

I had Zimbra operational and opened the SMTP port to allow it to handle email. Zimbra received the email and it was placed in the deferred queue, giving the message

postfix/lmtp ... deferred ... connection refused

I tried to resolve the issue by running the command on the wiki

zmlocalconfig -e postfix_lmtp_host_lookup=native

But afterwards the mail server would not start. I performed a reboot (following the age old Restart, Reboot, Reinstall cycle) and afterwards none of the services would start up. I have since set up the Split DNS, but I am still getting errors

zimbra@postoffice:~$ zmcontrol status

zimbra@postoffice:~$ zmcontrol -v
Release 7.2.0_GA_2669.UBUNTU10_64 UBUNTU10_64 FOSS edition.

Can someone please point me in a direction to try or should I just reinstall?

Thanks in advance
