zimbra installed from source, FC4.
I create a domain : test.homedns.org. It can send mail to outbound mail (yahoo,gmail), but when the outbound mail comes, they cannot come into my mailbox.
test.homedns.org is mapped to my global IP by DynDns. My local IP is 192.168.1.33
Service hostname and web mail mta is both: localhost.localdomain
Disabling DNS lookup doesnot effect.
Here is some text from Postfix mail system reply:

When I change Service Hostname to: test.homedns.org (and it's my pc's hostname too), the result is:
Oct 23 11:33:42 poorboy postfix/lmtp: 049B036D00: to=
, relay=none, delay=1, status=deferred (connect to test.homedns.org[18.104.22.168]: Connection refused)
I dont know why "host or domain name not found" or "connection refused". I showed it in /etc/hosts :
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
and disabled all firewall.
Have any idea ?
