Reverse Lookup

We are transitioing from Exchange 2003 to 2010.  Incoming mail is coming in on a Trendmicro appliance, but Outgoing mail is flowing through a different IP.   Our PTR record is pointing to our MX record.  Since we installed Exchange 2010 we are now getting lots of mail being refused and getting on blacklists.  Any thoughts?

Agree with the above comment - but in addition - if you don't have an A record pointing to the sending IP address, create a new one (e.g., outbound), change your Reverse DNS record (via your ISP) to the new A record outbound.domain.com and then change the SEND Connector on Exchange 2010 to show outbound.domain.com.

Everyone will like you again!
