I need help with PTR record

I have two domains configured on a windows 2003 server and I have email running for both.
I can receive email on both domains with no problem. However I can't send email to any users with a comcast email. I have read that it is due to reverse dns.  I have gone to http://centralops.net/co/ and checked my address 209.195.152.229. it says I have a ptr record of mail.stalsmanna.com.
stalsmanna.com is one of the domains I have configured but I can't find the prt record.
Where is the PTR record and how do I configure it so that both domains can send email to comcast email accounts.
Thanks

the PTR record or Reverse DNS is configured with your ISP. Call them and have them setup a PTR record to match the mail servers A record and IP address. Hope this helps!

You can contact your ISP were you have registered your domain.
And ask them to configure the PTR record of domain in ISP with your static IP.

Best of Luck

Hello,

Firstly run the NS lookup command on server then check the status.If the status is server unknown.Then download netdiag & dcdiag on windows server then run both tools & check the report.Let me know the report.

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: nslookup.ctcg.online.server.com (this is my server)
address: 68.178.232.99 (this is go daddy where I registered the domain name)

nslookup stalsmanna.com returns
Server: stalsmanna.com.ctcg.online.server.com
Address: 68.178.232.99
DNS request timed out.

On a pc on my network

You are blacklisted - mxtoolbox.com --> blacklists --> 209.195.152.229

Get off barracuda blacklist once you have identified any comprimised workstations / server and then you will probably be ok.

a lesser problem is your EHLO greeting and PTR do not match.

You must make sure what you use for your EHLO matches your PTR record. In your case it does not.

EHLO - ctcg1.ctcg.online.server.com
PTR - mail.stalsmanna.com

Change one or the other so they are the same.

See here for where to change EHLO on the SMTP virtual server: http://www.amset.info/exchange/dnsconfig.asp
