MailEnable DNS Help

Hi

I have mail enable on my server which I've configured with no problems. All seemed to work after I repointed my MX records of my domain to the ip of my server.


When setting up my e-mail client on my laptop to send and receive the e-mails I used the IP address of the server I have for both incoming and outgoing mail servers.


It does work but not totally as some servers such as gmail reject e-mails from my mailserver as I have put the IP address as incoming and outgoing.

What do I need to do on my DNS server to setup names rather than IP's

Eg  

mail.mydomain.com
SMTP.mydomain.com


Thanks

i have a dedicated server that runs mail enable and a fixed ip address.  it all works but SOME MAILSERVERS SUCH A GMAIL REJECT MAIL FROM ME.  I want my mailserver incoming and outgoing addesses to be names and not the server IP address.

Thanks

Unless you register SMTP domain on internet, you cannot set routable DNS names pointing to your mailing system
