Hi hmcnasty,

There are online tests;

You could also give us the domain and we can test it for you

Hope that helps,

Looks fine;

"OK. The IPs of all of your mail server(s) have reverse DNS (PTR) entries. RFC1912 2.1 says you should have a reverse DNS for all your mail servers. It is strongly urged that you have them, as many mailservers will not accept mail from mailservers with no reverse DNS entry. Note that this information is cached, so if you changed it recently, it will not be reflected here (see the www.DNSstuff.com Reverse DNS Tool for the current data). The reverse DNS entries are:

239.73.72.72.in-addr.arpa mail.bgcworcester.org. [TTL=86400]"

(from http://www.dnsreport.com/tools/dnsreport.ch?domain=bgcworcester.org)
