Hi All,

I'm having problem like the following when I tried to send to abacus@abacusevents.com:

Diagnostic information for administrators:

Generating server: mail.domain.com

abacus@abacusevents.com
mail.abacusevents.com [B]#<mail.abacusevents.com #5.0.0 smtp; 554 "Refused. You have no reverse DNS entry. Contact abuse@suresupport.com for details."> #SMTP#

Open in new window


which records should I add into my internal DNS or my ISP DNS server ? MX or PTR for this problem ?

and suppose i already got one service that is running on my one public static IP address:

eg: 25 SMTP and 80 normal website and 443 (OWA, HTTPS, etc...)

do i still need to add the reverse DNS for this server in the public facing DNS ?

Thanks.

You need to contact your ISP.  Your send connector and ptr record shoudl be the same

Yes have the ISP create one PTR record.

The correct record shoudl be  xx.xxx.xx.xx.in-addr.arpa   IN  PTR yourdomain.com    where the x's are your current IP reversed.

telnet to your server on port 25 and that should be your mx record/PTR record name... assuming it was setup correctly

I feel this needs to be clear.

> thanks man, so in this case i shall put PTR mydomain.com instead of PTR mail.domain.com ??

No.

You should put mail.mydomain.com; this needs to match up to the name used by your mail server.

Expect this change to take 24 hours to take effect. Your ISP has a value set for that record right now (other people will remember it for 24 hours).
