I have two PTR records already setup with my ISPs for rDNS. I also have two IP blocks from My email is coming/going  on this IP from Arin. This IP is nat'd back to the spam filtering appliance which in turns forwards it to the exchange server.

Example: When i email someone that checks for rDNS the IP they see is (Not the ISP IP address). how do i assign a hostname to this IP?

I think you have full NAT configured (or one-to-one NAT).

So, simply ask your ISP to add a reverse DNS record on your @IP Your ISP can add reverse DNS on all @IP that he deliver to you.

What didn't work exactly?

Have you delegated NS authority for your IP blocks to a nameserver you can add a PTR record to?
