Well, from the output you've posted you obviously have no valid A or MX record for yourdomain.com and you need to fix that.
See that's where the confusion lies and the multiple guides, how to's and tutorials fail; lack of full information. Where exactly does the A and MX records go; the internal DNS/BIND server OR your domain's DNS host table OR both, and what's the correct syntax, wording, format, etc.? (e.g., "@", "
", "mail", "mail.example.com" or "mail.example.com.")
Quick Start Installation Guide - the tutorials in the wiki & the (numerous) topics in the forums detail exactly what needs to be done.
Well this is my example.com DNS host's table (on GoDaddy):
18.104.22.168 is the public IP to my mail server Ubuntu box running Zimbra, 22.214.171.124 is GoDaddy's IP that was already there when I registered the domain (I registered just the domain, no additional packages were purchased whatsoever)Code:A (Host) Record: Host Points to mail.example.com 126.96.36.199 @ 188.8.131.52 MX (Mail Exchange) Record: Host Points to Priority example.com mail.example.com 10
And this is my internal DNS/BIND db.example.com file (on the Zimbra server):
Is there anything wrong here?Code:; ; BIND data file for example.com ; $TTL 604800 @ IN SOA mail.example.com. admin.example.com. ( 200911180045 ; Serial 604800 ; Refresh 86400 ; Retry 2419200 ; Expire 604800 ) ; Negative Cache TTL ; @ IN NS mail IN MX 10 mail IN A 192.168.0.10 mail IN A 192.168.0.10
oh my, I already posted that info, nothing has changed. I knew you were a bot, you post that request multiple times to anyone with DNS issues.
Does anyone else have any ideas or suggestions (for the SERVFAIL error message when doing a nslookup/dig of the email domain)?
this is a joke right? a prank or something? if not, here's my output: http://www.zimbra.com/forums/install...tml#post161541. if so, why? I'm just trying to get help with Zimbra, I mean this what this forum is for right?
it's totally there:
almost two weeks on this whole issue, two domains attempted, 5 OS [re-]installations, 7 Zimbra [re-]installations, 30ish articles of documentation, tutorials, how-tos, guides, forum threads, etc.... those are simply comments of frustration homebro, not immaturity. I'm sure you can understand if not relate.Code:anuvatec@mail:~$ cat /etc/bind/db.example.com ; ; BIND data file for example.com ; $TTL 604800 ;$ORIGIN example.com. @ IN SOA mail.example.com. admin.example.com.
