reverse lookup and AOL blocking our exchange email

We have recently moved are email from a hosted server to our own running Exchange 2003.    The only problem we seem to have is that AOL is blocking any emails sent from our server.    I have read that we need to setup a reverse dns record.   Where (and how) do we do that?   Would it be on our server, via godaddy, or via our ISP which is AT&T?

Through AT&T.  Let them know you'd like to change your reverse DNS and set it to your MX domain.

I'm fairly sure (as a friend has just confirmed he had this issue) that AOL - in the UK at least - block port 25 for anti-spam purposes.

Check these URLs:

Hope this helps!

Does it matter what port number I change it to?   I was thinking 2525.   Also, is it as simple as going into default smtp settings and changing it from 25 to 2525?

it appears that you cannot change exchange from port 25 and still be able to send email
