Mac OSX 10 Intel, Send/Receive mail
I am picking my way through installing Zimbra 4.5 on a Intel, Mac Mini, with 2 gigs of ram. This is just a test run to see if I can install this, I am not very strong with command line stuff, but given clear instructions I can do Okay.
I have been able to launch the admin console, and create an account. But I can't Send/Receive mail.
I have turned OSX firewall off temporarily. and I believe that my dns is set up correctly. At least it does resolve to my test domain and that it turn points to my server.
When I do a port scan of the server, port 25 seems like it is NOT open. Even if with the firewall off.
if I "tail" the log I do not see anything that looks like incoming connections, but there does seem to be something that looks like postfix trying to send mail but timing out.
Is there anything else I am missing. Could there be a problem with Postfix?

Couldn't find anything that made sense
I did a search for Host File in both the forum and the wiki, but I didn't find anything that made sense to me. :(
What is the purpose of the Hosts File? Why isn't setting it up handled by the Setup scripts?
