    If you don't want any mail delivery to/from external servers then yes, it's possible. Just install ZImbra and don't enable 'use DNS lookups' in the admin ui.

    The easiest thing is to set-up a local dns server with a local (i.e. non internet) domain name and point that towards your zimbra server. Check the forums & wiki for some set-up instructions.

    You don't need another machine, you just need to install BIND and you can install it on the same machine as Zimbra.

    There's a thread called 'DNS in a nutshell' that will tell you what you need to know, search the forums for it. There's also some information in the wiki.
