    Default [SOLVED] cant send email to a external domain unless they sent email to me 1st

    Weird issue,
    I cant send email to an external domain unless they send email to me 1st.

    For example:
    if I email xxx@hotmail.com they wont recieve the email. However if they email me, i get the email, if i reply they do get it.

    Any ideas where to start? i checked dns and it looks good.

    What errors do you see in the log files when you try to send an email?
    Regards

    /var/log/zimbra.log plus does your MX record have a valid rDNS entry against the IP ?

    Thanks for the reply,
    That was my problem, i had an error in the mx record for DNS for that domain, so it wasnt sending out properly.

    Thanks for the help!
