Hello,

The situation is I am not able to send emails to a particular domain and I get the following bounce-back:
*********************************
Delivery has failed to these recipients or distribution lists:

*****@nebraska.edu
Your message wasn't delivered because of security policies. Microsoft Exchange will not try to redeliver this message for you. Please provide the following diagnostic text to your system administrator.

The following organization rejected your message: uncsinfo.nebraska.edu.

******************************************************

Under diagnostic info, this was listed:

(rDNS) Possibly forged hostname for 65.73.34.42 ** Valid DNS configuration required for connection to this server **

I was told by them that it was a problem on my side with my ability to have a Reverse-DNS lookup performed on me (Anti-Spam measure).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Make sure that whoever is hosting your dns has a PTR record set up for your mail server.

I called our ISP and had them add an rDNS entry that resolves to our public IP and that helped with some of the clients that we email to from our exchange box.

Thanks for your help!  I needed to contact my ISP and have them update the PTR to reflect our domain.
