    Default postfix deferred delivery with invalid argument

    I can receive mail just find, but I can't send any email out.
    Everything it tries to connect to gets a line in the log such as the following:
    Code:
    Jul  9 14:58:17 trobb postfix/error[20922]: C27A889E063: to=<skralg@gmail.com>, relay=none, delay=0.03, delays=0.01/0.01/0/0.01, dsn=4.4.1, status=deferred (delivery temporarily suspended: connect to gmail.com[74.125.224.151]:25: Invalid argument)

    or like this:
    Code:
    Jul  9 15:14:56 trobb postfix/smtp[30579]: connect to gmail.com[74.125.224.150]:25: Invalid argument

    I've searched the forums, wikis, google, and was told that 'zimbra' was a bad word in a postfix chatroom. Anyone have any ideas about this?

    Can you bring out more details from that log? By doing 'grep' with message id like
    'grep C27A889E063 /var/log/zimbra.log'

    A few things, check if its just to one location that mails get defferred to. Confirm if you are not in any blacklists. Email Blacklist Check - See if your server is blacklisted

    You can get details of your queue with these commands.
    # su - zimbra
    $ sudo ~/libexec/zmqstat
    $ postqueue -p

    All outgoing mails get deferred, not just to gmail.com.
    I'm not listed in any blacklists, except for some weird incorrect IRC blacklist for rogue rDNS.
    Code:
    LNSGBLOCK	 LISTED	Abused DNS - Rogue rDNS used to abuse IRC 
    Return codes were: 127.0.0.9	43120	94

    You should update your forum profile with the output of the following command (do not post the output in this thread):

    Code:
    zmcontrol -v
    Is this a new install or an upgrade? How long have you had this problem (and when did it start)? Have you made any changes to the Zimbra (postfix) configuration? Are you trying to relay through another server (gmail, perhaps)?
    Regards

    This is a new install. Rather than bother with migrating from a 32-bit to a 64-bit, I just installed the 64-bit version on the new server, and manually recreated everything and changed my MX records and reverse DNS about 2 weeks ago.

    It's never been able to send.

    I did make changes to the postfix config, to try to make it only bind to 1 ip addresses, but that was a colossal failure, so i reinstalled to overwrite everything.

    I'm not trying to relay through anything. The gmail references are from a forwarding rule from jrudolph@skralg.com to skralg@gmail.com.

    The edit profile has been missing under userCP for a while now, I did notice it last night. This is the page that phoenix referred to http://www.zimbra.com/forums/profile.php?do=editprofile

    Hi Bill, please look into this.

    I am wrong in guessing it could be a blacklisting, if yes it would have been a message saying recepient rejected with a code. This is happening within the server.
    The commands to monitor/view queue is for your understanding only, so you will know whats happening. Do not post mail accounts in public forums, and if you have to you have to make sure you remove the ids.

    After the reinstall, it's working. But it's sending email from the wrong IP address (127.0.0.1, and then egresses through eth0, rather than what the mail server's hostname resolves to, which is on interface eth0:7). All IPs are public.
