Reverse DNS with Network Solutions and MS Exchange 2003

I currently have several domains hosted with Network Solutions and I maintain my own MS Exchange 2003 server.  Recently I have had problems with email bouncing back (seems like anything going to a godaddy domain) because I do not have reverse DNS setup.  DNS is handled by Network Solutions and when I asked Network Solutions about this and they said they do not support it.  The site that is blocking the email is http://unblock.secureserver.net.  I asked them about it and they insist that the my IP address is in a dynamic pool.  I have a static IP address and it comes from road runner (time warner cable).

I contacted time warner and they said that "that should not be a problem, they should not block you for that reason".  Well, they do.  Time Warner won't change anything.  Network Solutions said it doesn't offier reverse DNS.  Do I have any other options??  Help!!

Network Solutions is NOT the one that should be doing the reverse DNS.   Road Runner/Time Warner is who should be providing the reverse DNS.  Reverse DNS is handled by the owner of the IP block, which in your case is Road Runner/Time Warner.  

Network Solution is responsible for the forward lookup, because they are providing DNS services for you domain.

Reverse DNS is something which should be handled by Time Warner
In fact they have documented this thing on their site too
