Hello Zimbra community,

The Error

DNS ERROR resolving MX for zimbra.local-dns.com
It is suggested that the domain name have an MX record configured in DNS
Change domain name? [Yes]

I've read plenty of threads about this issue. The host name works with my DNS, but it looks like the mail exchanger is not configured correctly. See my network information below.

Any help would be appreciated.
