    Does this help? Split DNS. If you want to actually receive E-mail, though, you will need to have an actual DNS server pointing those E-mails to your Zimbra server...

    Go to yast and search for BIND, install it from there. Zimbra (Postfix) needs a DNS server to deliver the mail even if it's local.

    You'll have a steep learning curve then. The instructions in the wiki describe what you need to know.

    thers also a yast module for configuring dns server. it's nothing too powerful but for a basic dns setup it's probably easier for a new person than editing zone files. go into software management and search for yast2-dns-server and install that. Then restart yast and you should find it under network services.

    mmmmmmmmmm... what??

    mm... Bind and yast2-dns-server are installed

    In /var/ if I try to manipulate or do something whit named it say me that not exist but if I type named and press tab there appear a lot of named-> named, named-checkconf, named-checkzone, named-compilezone but i cant do anything with them(everything as root).

    yast2-dns-server installs DNS SERVER ??

    if answer is yes, i don't know very well how to configure, yesterday I type my server name but i don't know very well what ips or what do i have to put them into A and MX records. I put there 127.0.0.1 and 127.0.0.2, but I don't know if this is rigth or what.

    I didn't use these things never.

    Thanks

    If BIND and the Yast configuration interface is installed, open Yast, System and then Run Level utility. Make sure BIND is set to start in levels 3 and 5. Then in Yast, Network services, you will find the icon for DNS server that will let you begin configuring your DNS server(BIND).

    This is going to require you to have some understanding of setting up DNS and configuring.

    You might want to look into something like Webmin if you're struggling with getting the DNS server configured. You really need to spend the time learning bind if you're going to have it in a production environment, but Webmin would get you up and running fairly quickly doing it the GUI way.

    Agreed. Setting up BIND or any DNS server is going to require some learning.

    And Webmin is good stuff. Love it for firewall and logs. I personally like the CLI Yast tool for configuring my BIND ervers.
