Hi legolasthehansy

when i run ./config command, i get the dns error.
i have also attached the error log.
error.txt
Forward and reverse zone setting files also attached

Your text file error log shows that your /etc/hosts file is not configured properly..

Specifically, the localhost (127.0.0.1) entry needs to have your FQDN entry first (e.g.: mail1.mydomain.com)

Now that being said, I prefer the QMAILTOASTER.com website -- QMT incorporates nearly all of the "necessary" QMail updates and patches and is continually updated by the community -- which, in all openness, I am one....

If you like the toaster, and just want some additional features, you can also look at QMail Toaster Plus (qtp.qmailtoaster.com)

Good Luck!
