    Welcome to the forums

    Have a read through Community Edition Quick Start Guide and also you will need to understand the concept of Wiki :: Split DNS if you server will be on a private IP address.

    The instructions should be identical to the instructions for RedHat. I used to run Zimbra on CentOS by those instructions, but moved to Ubuntu 8.04 LTS to remain on a supported platform. Plus I kinda like Ubuntu better anyways.

    Code:
    zone "mail.riverbankscenter.com" {
    type master;
    file "db.mail.riverbankscenter.com";
    };
    Your zone should be riverbankscenter.com and at the moment you have set it to be the FQDN of your Zimbra server. If you have installed BIND on your Zimbra server then resolv.conf should point to your Zimbra IP.

    If you are using a relay host ensure that you have disabled DNS lookups in the Admin GUI.

    Hi Uxbod,

    Thanks for your prompt response your very kind. considering i am new here felt like im already pro...admin?

    i think it's almost near to success because internally i can send mail and receive from external like yahoo and etc... but i'd receive it to JUNK folder i was able to determine why because my IP is in the spamhaust list / RBL and PBL list...

    but another problem is my outgoing mail is really not working???

    Here are my settings and output log for your reference, thanks so much...
    i am really focusing in this mail server just to prove and implement aleast one server out of 3.

    Unfortunately you don't say if you are on a static or dynamic IP. At least I did not see.
    Since you say your IP are on spamhaust list / RBL and PBL list, I assume it is an Dynamic IP address.

    Following you should change:

    /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf


    // DNS 203.0.178.191 (dns.iinet.net.au)
    // DNS 64.102.255.44 (ns2.cisco.com)
    forwarders { 203.0.178.191; 64.102.255.44; };

    Forwarder should be your ISP Domain server. You can add more than one.



    Settings in Admin GUI:

    Server Settings:

    Web mail MTA Hostname:mail.riverbankscenter.com
    Web mail MTA Port: 25
    Relay MTA for external delivery: Your ISP mail server name (not IP address) IE: mail.iinet.net.au
    Web mail MTA timeout (s): 60
    MTA Trusted Networks: 127.0.0.0/8 192.168.1.0/24
    [ ] Enable DNS lookups


    Global settings:

    Web mail MTA Hostname: mail.riverbankscenter.com
    Web mail MTA Port: 25
    Relay MTA for external delivery: Your ISP mail server name (not IP address) IE: mail.iinet.net.au
    [ ]Enable DNS lookups


    You must make sure that your ISP is not blocking port 25.
    Also check your firewall if you have and router setting. IE. I have a NAT configuration, therefore I port forward port 25 on
    on mail host IP protocol TCP. Yours would be IP 192.168.1.231

    Regards,
    William
