    Default Zimbra and GoDaddy

    Hi,

    I am pretty new when it comes to DNS. I got a domain name through GoDaddy.com and I am kind of confused because on GoDaddy's DNS manager, there are entries for MX and NS.

    What I am reading is before installing Zimbra, I need to setup a local DNS server.
    I need to enter MX and NS there, but that is already there in GoDaddy,

    I don't know if I am making sense or not.

    Please help me understand.

    Thanks

    Who is your Server provider ?

    Are you installing Zimbra on your local server or internet server ?

    Having only domain without hosting won't help you with installation.

    Give more details so that we can help you.

    Hi, thanks for reply,

    It is not a local server, but internet. We are using Rackspace cloud and we want to install Zimbra Collaboration Suite on the server hosted by them. So far I was able to successfully install Zimbra collaboration suite on CentOS 5.6 and have it up and running. I have followed this guy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ti_JL...eature=related I am able to send email from zimbra web client to to my gmail account but I am not able to receive email I sent from gmail.

    Here is my config

    /etc/hosts
    127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain
    10.179.44.84 mail.ourdomain.com email

    /etc/resolv.conf
    search mail.ourdomain.com
    nameserver 10.179.44.84

    On GoDaddy's DNS Manager,

    I currently have 2 entries on A record for ourdomain.com:

    HOST POINTS TO
    @ 50.56.205.xxx
    mail 50.56.182.xxx

    On MX section I have:

    PRIORITY HOST POINTS TO
    10 @ mail.ourdomain.com

    For NS I have ( I can't modify these, only add additional entries)

    HOST POINTS TO
    @ (informational) ns55.domaincontrol.com (Informational)
    @ (informational) ns56.domaincontrol.com (Informational)

    How do we setup DNS, if godaddy seems to be managing it for us. Is it required on our case? Also when I received email from zimbra, the address is user@mail.ourdomain.com, I need it to be user@ourdomain.com.

    I know that's alot of questions, but any help is appreciated.

    Thanks

    Default Got it working

    So, I followed the youtube guide I mentioned earlier and I am able now to get it working. I realized required ports were not open in iptables to receive email from outside.

    I used Godaddy DNS manager to point MX to my mail server. I need to looking to this DNS thing a little more closely.

    Thanks for all the help!

    reetika, You should be fine with creating an A record that points to your public address, creating the appropriate CNAMES that point to your A record (imap, smtp, pop3) and creating an MX record that points to the FQDN of your mail server. Additionally (an recommened) you can create a TXT record for SPF.
