Ossec error

Hi All

I have built a new Ubuntu 10.4 server this weekend to host my Zimbra server on so have setup split DNS.

From what I can tell, it's all fine. I can do an nslook up and get results. Can send and receive emails but keep getting wierd ossec messages like below which has nothing to do with email we send. Hoping someone can advise.

OSSEC HIDS Notification.
