Thanks so far for your help.

I'll explain our dns setup and maybe you can provide some advice on what I should do.

Our DNS server (in the DMZ as well) handles 1 zone (domain.example)

records in our zone file are as follows...

;hosts
www IN A 1.2.3.4
ns1 IN A 1.2.3.4
mail IN A 1.2.3.4
@ IN A 1.2.3.4

;mail entry
domain.example. MX 1 mail

As you can see, all the hosts resolve to the same IP address. Because everything is behind that address in the dmz.

These DMZ servers (we have a few) all use our ISP's nameservers to resolve queries.

I'm confused as to what proper hostname I should be assigning to these computers, specifically this new mail server. It seems like whatever hostname I assign, none of them will resolve (in the zimbra setup)
