Those lines, which you added to the postfix config (which will have no impact on dovecot), are -- as the RH documentation indicates -- to turn off weak protocols, they don't turn anything on, other directives are used for that. > >> >> That must be successful first.

Based on that order, the "localhost" (127.0.0.1) server is the last one that will be queried. Unless explicitly queried (e.g., with an @<nameserver> syntax) it will only be queried if the other two fail. Could you confirm the current order (and perhaps list) the nameservers in your /etc/resolv.conf file - so we are aware of any changes. I did a "localhost" query against the first two and they respond correctly, e.g., ;; QUESTION SECTION: ;localhost. IN A ;; ANSWER SECTION: localhost. 86400 IN A 127.0.0.1 ;; Query time: 100 msec ;; SERVER: 18.104.22.168#53(22.214.171.124) Somewhat related to the: > telnet localhost 143 > > fails [while it works when you try 127.0.0.1] In an earlier message (from Sunday, August 26, 2018 14:37:57) you state: > I have all the files shipped with CentOS. I created 2 zone files could you please enumerate the "named.*" files that you have under your defined directory. Note, if you've chrooted named that's a different location than in a non-chrooted setup. Then there's this: > ; <<>> DiG 9.9.4-RedHat-9.9.4-61.el7 <<>> @localhost localhost > +short > ; (1 server found) > ;; global options: +cmd > ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached do you *really* have a name server running on your local machine? Just thought I'd ask. While you are at it, could you show the current state of your /etc/hosts file (as well as its ownerships and permissions).
