    That looks correct now.

    [root@zimbra ~]# host `hostname`
    zimbra.collectivedata.local has address 192.168.254.32

    It's still deferring the zimbra@localhost.localdomain emails as well as one from root@localhost.localdomain. Same error as before, connection timed out. Any ideas?

    Can you send me your zmlocalconfig output via pvt message?

    C'mon guys, you know this.

    When sending email to user@domain.com, we first perform a name resolution for the MX record for domain.com.

    If that fails (no MX record) we perform an A lookup on domain.com, and attempt to deliver directly to that host.

    You're sending email to user@localhost.localdomain; localhost.localdomain has no MX record in DNS (NOT THE HOSTS FILE), so we deliver to the A record.

    So - two things.

    If localhost.localdomain doesn't return 127.0.0.1, your DNS server sucks. No DNS server should return a routeable address for that lookup; find the admin, tell him to fix it.

    That aside, if you want this delivered, why not just create localhost.localdomain as a local alias domain and deliver it that way?

    (I'm assuming that the original report of mail FROM zimbra@localhost.localdomain meant mail TO zimbra@localhost.localdomain. If that's not the recipient, then this whole thread is off the track.)

    That's how I ended up fixing it last night. I created an alias for zimbra, root & admin@localhost.localdomain and set them as an alias for my mail account. As far as why the dns server seems to be pushing out localhost.localdomain, I have no idea. It's not listed in my tinydns records. I'd still like to find out why that is returning the wrong IP but it's most likely a job for another forum.
