    Default Question On Setup For Testing Zimbra At Home

    I don't have a static IP but my ip does not change very often. I have a few questions on how to setup dns. I modified the mx record at my registrar to point to xxx.dyndns.info. I have the dyndns client running on my firewall.

    So, on the zimbra server, should I have the local ip address (192.168.0.8) in the hosts file as mail.mydomain.com or the public ip address? Forward ports?

    You should have the local. You'll also may need to run a local DNS to get your host name to resolve to the same local IP. Another option is to turn off DNS lookups and just sned everything via your ISP's mail relay.

    I see where I can disable dns lookups, where do I specify that I want to use my isp's relay?
