Reverse DNS entry for sending secure email ?

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.

I feel this needs to be clear.

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).

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

thanks for the reply man, since i only have one public IP address with many CNAME, shouldI create just one PTR records describing mail.domain.com into my public IP address ?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

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.

Confirm your IP with the ISP & also chek weather you ip is in blacklist..?

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