    Default [SOLVED] Still unable to connect to mta

    Well, thank you to all that have helped me in resolving http://www.zimbra.com/forums/install...-anything.html. But I am still having troubles.

    I have two accounts, the admin and martinezjr. I am trying to set up a group/shared calendar, but I wanted to test sending out an email first. No good. Error message as stated below. All the services are up and running. There is one problem that is concerning me, and probably has something to do with this, in the admin console, under the servers tab, my other zimbra servers do not return statuses. I searched for that error, and found out that Fedora does not use syslog, but rsyslog. I made the necessary links on all the machines and then rebooted the machines. I have even shutdown sendmail on all machines.

    What else can I do?

    Please check in /var/log/zimbra.log to see why Postfix is not starting; plus post the following
    Code:
    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol status
    cat /etc/hosts
    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    dig yourdomain mx
    dig yourdomain any
    host `hostname` <- note backticks and not single quotes

    I appologize for this, but I believe one of the problems is that my mta server (bcmta) is too slow to handle this service. I will have to stop until I can get a replacement for it. Thank you for your help though.
