Default Zimbra Mail problem

Hi I followed how to, to setup my zimbra mail server it is working fine i can send mail from it but i cannot get mails in it. I kind of know why is that because I could not find out where to put these lines I mean in which files /etc/hosts or /etc/resolv.conf or somewhere else

...]
mail.example.com. A 1.2.3.4
mail.example.com. MX 0 mail.example.com.
example.com. MX 0 mail.example.com.
[...]

my domain not getting resolved any way I am not able to access it using name however I am able to access it with IP address and that is the main reason I belive because when reply come it come to domain name not to IP address. So please help me with that and guide me where to put stated above lines in which files to work it correctly. Any help is much appreciated

Thank you in advance for your time and instruction
and if possible provide me content of specific file after inserting above lines into that files.

Many many thanks to all of you

You must create the DNS records on the DNS servers that are responsible for your domain (usually that are your registrar's name servers).

You can find out about these name servers by running
Code:
dig ns yourdomain.com

Can you post your domain name, and I'll check it for you?
Regarding BIND, you should check out this tutorial:http://www.howtoforge.com/traditional_dns_howto

Default Zimbra Mail Problem

Thank you so much I really appreciate for your time

I dont have any privat address or some since I am not a firm I still in school doing networking and like linux and want to do stuff in linux rather that window. I have a dyndns though which point to my router and that is
servernet.selfip.info www. can be put before servernet also. So here I want to setup. I have linux box name as simple as ubuntu and my local domain I want to name some as lserver.net so that would be ubuntu.lserver.net

Outside Domain= servernet.selfip.info
Inside Domain= lserver.net

I am trying to get it up so I will be able to send which I already am and receive mails from outside and local as well.
Any help would be appreciated
Thank you for your time

I think in the selfip.info control panel you can enable MX records for your subdomain. IT should point to your router's public IP address as well.

Default Zimbra Mail Problem

Sorry for delay was kind of busy at work & school projects

I set it up to selfip.info as you pointed but I am still not getting mail and while installing zimbra I gets error message saying that dns dont have MX records in it, but if i skipp that error installation can completed but again would be able to receive mail.
Please help me with setting MX in DNS if you can. I am not sure where to go and what to type so please guide me through and always thank you for your time and support. Do I need bind9 for that?

That doesn't look ok. Try
servernet.selfip.info. 14400 IN MX 10 servernet.selfip.info.
instead, and make sure that servernet.selfip.info is pointing to your public IP address.

Default Zimbra Mail problem

I have not done anything to it. I just select dyndns option which let you configure mail or some and I name my computer that way so it should look like that.
I still need help with creating MX record because I am not sure where to go and what to type
If you can help me with that I would appreciated your help so please please do.
thank you for your time and help so far
