Hi Experts,

I have a Debian linux server with hostname ns1.fmec.local and a registered domain of fmec.com.au

Hi omarfarid and bevhost, thanks for your replies. Bevhost, what if I have a ddns with tzo.com? My isp blocks port 25 so I purchased an outbound mail relay service from tzo. Please see below dig result:
namelookup
Would that mean the A record should be pointing to tzo?

ie,
mail.fmec.com.au           300        IN           A         SAF.tzo.com.

Open in new window

How should the reverse DNS be setup? Still like above?
101.235.76.114.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer mail.fmec.com.au.

If your ISP blocks port 25 outbound then you should forward all your email via their server.,
If you don't have a fixed (static) IP address the you can't have a PTR record
if you can't have a PTR Record then you can't have a Sending SMTP MAIL Server.

Hi bevhost, I was able to get my ms exchange 2003 working with tzo and have been using it for many years. I need to make TZO as my primary MX.

so..
fmec.com.au.     IN      MX     10     SAF.TZO.COM.

Open in new window

I got that from:
