    fumocamel,

    A couple of things to try.

    First off as pheonix said make sure your /etc/hosts file looks like this:
    Code:
    127.0.0.1       localhost.localdomain localhost
    192.168.253.2   email.ubuntu69.com  email
    There shouldn't be any other lines in the file - if there are delete them.

    Second, the zone file for resolving DNS for your own domain is referenced in /etc/bind/named.conf.local. Unless you've changed this to point to /var/named/ubuntu69.com then all of the info is being pulled from the other file (/etc/bind/zones/email.ubuntu69.com.db).

    When you change the zone file, the changes are not picked up without first doing 2 things:
    1) Change the unique ID in the zone file to be greater than the last unique ID. For your installation I think it would look something like this-
    Code:
    ; email.ubuntu69.com
            $TTL 604800
            @       IN      SOA     ns.email.ubuntu69.com. root.email.ubuntu69.com. (
                    2007022601	#<--- UNIQUE ID.
                    28800
                    3600
                    604800
                    38400
            );
            @       IN      NS      ns
                    IN      MX      10 mail
                    IN      A       192.168.253.2
            ns      IN      A       192.168.253.2
            mail    IN      A       192.168.253.2
    The common practice for unique IDs is to use the date in reverse order (YYYYMMDD) followed by a sequence number (01, 02, etc). This way if you update DNS multiple times in the same day you just increment the sequence number portion. In the above example, you would replace "2007022601" with "2007040601".

    2) After you have incremented the unique ID (along with any other updates to your zone file) you have to restart DNS to "publish" this new information.
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/bind9 restart
    Last is understanding the name of your server. I saw in your earlier post where you got stuck at "DNS ERROR resolving MX for ubuntu69.email.ubuntu69.com". This tells me you're entering "ubuntu69" for the name of the computer. The way the zone files are set up, "ubuntu69.com" is your domain name and "email" is your local computer's name. This makes the fully qualified name of the computer "email.ubuntu69.com".

    Hope this helps get you past the problems.

    Some more thoughts...

    I don't think you need the file /var/named/ubuntu69.com. As far as I know nothing would be referencing it. Based on the /etc/bind/named.conf.local entry the zone files being used is /etc/bind/zones/email.ubuntu69.com.db.

    When you run the commands are you doing the "sudo" before them? All of these commands require root level access.

    Replace your /etc/bind/zones/email.ubuntu69.com.db file contents with the following:
    Code:
    ; email.ubuntu69.com
            $TTL 604800
            @       IN      SOA     ns.email.ubuntu69.com. root.email.ubuntu69.com. (
                    2007040701
                    28800
                    3600
                    604800
                    38400
            );
    @       IN      NS      ns
            IN      MX      10 mail
            IN      A       192.168.253.2
    email   IN      A       192.168.253.2
    mail    IN      A       192.168.253.2
    ns      IN      A       192.168.253.2
    root    IN      A       192.168.253.2
    After these changes try restarting DNS again:
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/bind9 restart
    I've never see that message "rndc..." so you may need to do some research on it.

    Default I have the same problem....

    My server is behind a router which connects to a cable modem (Dynamic IP)
    I registered in a dinamyc DNS page...
    The problem is getting from the locan network out to the router to get to the dynamic DNS server...
    I think I have to use a Split DNS configuration (not sure)
    I have tried lots of ways.. the best I got was installing it and just working as a local network server

    Have you actually enabled DNS lookups in the Admin UI?
