    Default can't receive mail on FC4

    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:

    This is the Postfix program at host test.homedns.org.

    I'm sorry to have to inform you that your message could not
    be delivered to one or more recipients. It's attached below.

    For further assistance, please send mail to

    If you do so, please include this problem report. You can
    delete your own text from the attached returned message.

    The Postfix program

    : Host or domain name not found. Name service error
    for name=localhost.localdomain type=A: Host not found


    Some log from /var/log/maillog

    Oct 23 11:43:01 test postfix/smtpd[4136]: connect from qproxy.gmail.com[72.14.204.194]
    Oct 23 11:43:03 test postfix/smtpd[4136]: 999F036CFA: client=qproxy.gmail.com[72.14.204.194]
    Oct 23 11:43:05 test postfix/cleanup[4139]: 999F036CFA: message-id=<2f6b72f00510222142t4e93d79aua1e82e9996778b46@mail. gmail.com>
    Oct 23 11:43:05 test postfix/qmgr[4023]: 999F036CFA: from=, size=2303, nrcpt=1 (queue active)
    Oct 23 11:43:05 test postfix/lmtp[4147]: 999F036CFA: to=, relay=none, delay=2, status=bounced (Host or domain name not found. Name service error for name=localhost.localdomain type=A: Host not found)


    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[3342]: 049B036D00: to=, relay=none, delay=1, status=deferred (connect to test.homedns.org[58.186.51.172]: 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
    192.168.1.33 test.homedns.org


    and disabled all firewall.

    Have any idea ?

    Your DNS is not working right. It's resolving:

    test.homedns.org -> 58.186.51.172 and that IP doesn't seem available from localhost.

    How about the first case ? When I send mail between 2 accounts from 1 domain, localhost.localdomain not found. The DNS is wrong again ? I can solve this problem by installing tinydns, but I want to know whether we can run zimbra normally without installing it ? Maybe the BIND causes this errors.

    Why is it looking for "localhost.localdomain"? Did you use that as your mail domain? If so I'm not sure it will work. You should use a normal FQDN like mymailhost.mydomain.com and in your /etc/hosts file have a real IP mapped to that domain.
