i am not recieving email from a customer. They are running an in house Lotus Domino email server and receiving an error message that reads:

host vscan1.anet.com [ip address] said: 450 4.7.1 Client host rejected: cannot find your hostname, [ip address] (in reply to RCPT TO command.)

these are orders being placed and since i have never used the Domino system before, im not sure what to do. i contacted my email host and from what they told me, they said that there was a problem with the nslookup; there was an extra octet. i tried to get a hold of this company's IT department to inform them that there was a problem on their side and that something needs to be done with reverse lookup, but i was told that he does not have access to that information. this is extrememly urgent! anyone have any ideas?

Simple answer is you don't.  You need to set this in DNS as a record with a PTR type

Take a look at www.dnsstuff.com for some tools that will check that IP addresses have correct PTR records set also some good explinations about DNS and how it all works

The problem is NOT domino related, but rather DNS of the company sending you mail. They are missing a reverse DNS PTR.They need to run
a free report on
http://www.dnsreport.com/ and fix their DNS.

I hope this helps !

usually your ISP will hold the reverse PTR records since they actually own the IP address block. Have them call their ISP and see if they can set this up
