If you have not got Reverse DNS assigned to your IP Address, you need to call your ISP and request one e.g., mail.domain.com and it needs to resolve in DNS back to the IP Address that you are sending mail from.

Please have a read of my article to make sure the rest of your configuration meets RFC standards:

You need to contact you ISP and ask them to confogure a reverse DNS entry for your IP address.  See my guide here for exchange DNS confoguration: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_2370-Exchange-DNS-Configuration.html

You need to call your ISP and ask them to create you a PTR(reverse DNS) record
