Good day experts.

I have been having a hell of a time trying to get unblocked by Yahoo mail services.

We have 2 domains both direct to our exchange server, PTR records are in place and all seems well, but for what ever reason we can not send mail to yahoo email. I confirmed we have not been compromised in any way. the issue started 10 days ago and i think this is what happened one of my users forwards that a recipient and email then it got added to spam then that same user kept sending here the same email 20 times in the same day because the recipient said she did not get it, (turns out it was in her Junk) so now we are blocked, i have requested to be delisted from Yahoo but all I am getting is automated response.

I have tried everything so now i am looking at DKIM

can some one help me here on how to get this up and running so i can resolve this issue.

thanks guys.

I can't help with DKIM but I can help you solve the yahoo issue without it.

See my blog post here: http://demazter.wordpress.com/2010/02/11/yahoo-blocking-senders/

I had the exact sane problem caused by a typo in my rDNS record.  Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a way to get yahoo to re-evaluate once it has been corrected.

Your mailserver host name is the computer name followed by the internal domain name.  Which part are you referring to?

Oh the mailserver hostname? This is your rDNS name, which should be the same as the A record used by the MX record.  There is a link on the blog for DNS configuration.

lost me there, the first question it asks for Mail server Host: name would that be

mail.fazzariopartners.com
or
fazzari-server1.fazzarica.local.

It would be mail.fazzariopartners.com

But, the rDNS record must match the A record used by your MX record, see my article here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_2370-Exchange-DNS-Configuration.html

Yes that is all configured.

A record, and 1 MX record.

My ISP has the PTR in place for mail.fazzariparnters.com and mail.fazzarica.com. tested and live.

so i should be good.
