Just when everything starting working... I had issues with trying to move my domain registrar (different soapbox, long story), anyway since the transfer didn't happen I am back with my original registrar and their DNS controls.
Now while I am in the Zimbra Admin Console, testing the MX record fails with this message:
Domain is configured to use SMTP host: mail.nchea.net. None of the MX records match this name.
Found the following MX records:
So to start troubleshooting:
zimbra@mail:~> host `hostname`
mail.nchea.net has address 126.96.36.199
mail.nchea.net mail is handled by 0 mail.nchea.net.
zimbra@mail:~> dig mail.nchea.net
; <<>> DiG 9.3.4 <<>> mail.nchea.net

It appears from the hostname and dig cmds, that everything "should" be okay, right?
Not sure what to change/fix.
I can receive now, but sending from the Webmail interface (only interface I have used) doesn't work.
I'm not sure what I should have in the "Web mail MTA Hostname" block --
"localhost" or "mail.nchea.net" -- I am using the later.
I understand there are several thing here,and I apologize but any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am running:
Release 5.0.11_GA_2695.SuSEES10_20081117054639 SuSEES10 FOSS edition
