What needs to change
Posted on 2010-09-23
This is my first mac mail server setup. Mail is working but I have questions ...
Here is the header information...

The rDNS failed because the ISP has yet to put the ptr record in place.
But should the mailserver's name (mailserver.thehighlands.us) be shown, or should it be the mail.thehighlands.us as the A record has been set (externally)?
The IP's of 127.0.0.1 & 192.168.9.9, should private IP's be showing up as well, or should it be their outside DNS IP?
What changes need to be made?
