_imap._tcp    SRV 0 1 143 imap.example.com.

RFC-2606 reserves 4 different TLDs for testing and documentation examples:

  • .example
  • .invalid
  • .localhost

DO NOT use .local for testing or local purposes! It's reserved for mDNS – if you hand out .local DNS entries, you'll interfere with Avahi/Zeroconf hostname resolution.

try one of the following:

systemd-resolve --flush-caches
systemctl restart nscd
systemctl restart dnsmasq
systemctl restart named
