You need to add a reverse lookup address to public DNS for your server flph259.prodigy.net, so that when the sbcglobal.net mail server does a reverse check on the IP you are connecting from it points to the name you claim to be.

Once that all matches up this problem will go away.

Please call your ISP and ask them to configure Reverse DNS on your Fixed IP Address as something like mail.domain.com - this name needs to resolve in DNS back to the Fixed IP Address of your server.

My article explains a few more checks you need to make to make sure oyu are RFC Compliant:

Apologies I misread the error and see now that flph259.prodigy.net is not in fact your server but one of the remote MXs. Basic premise is still appropriate though, and Alan's article covers it off nicely.

Thanks,
LLMorrisson.

So 2 months after you couldn't be bothered to reply to the participating Experts you close it down with "This was resolved and by Network Engineers" and then you are able to ask new questions.

Objecting to arbitrary closure.

50/50 Split between http:#a35095538 and http:#a35095572 should solve this problem happily.
