Hi,

    I am trying to configure an mail server using ZIMBRA.

    I purchased one VPS installed with centos 6 and along with that one static IP.

    I tried to configure the DNS and when I dig the details I get full response without any issue.

    Now my issue is...

    When I ping the domain out of the network it is not reaching the server, it returns with error. I am not aware where I went wrong. Can anybody advice me how to move further?

Ping details.

    ping ns1.mail.jesonahosting.net

    ping mail.jesonahosting.net

    IP address works fine : 208.67.17.217
   
    But domain or host is not working.

    Kindly advice on this.

Thank you.

Doing lookups on your domain, all queries FAIL.  Most with status REFUSED.

If you are running bind for dns, check your allow query, set it to any and reload bind.

allow-query     { any; };

If it works, you found the issue, and you can nail it down to whatever makes sense for your hosting type.

Though I am not using the bind solution for DNS, your hint made me to solve the problem.
