Setup reverse (PTR) record on a website with an external mailserver
I don't know I was clearly enough in the title, the problem is that one of my clients has his own mailserver, I host only his website, and he uses a local server for emails.
For the rest of websites which are hosted on this server, everything is ok, intodns.com reports this message :
You have reverse (PTR) records for all your IPs, that is a good thing.
But for the website which has the mailserver on another server it fails the PTR test on intodns.com
ERROR: No reverse DNS (PTR) entries. The problem MX records are:
188.8.131.52.in-addr.arpa -> no reverse (PTR) detected
You should contact your ISP and ask him to add a PTR record for your ips
I have checked Tailor Made Servers control panel, and I have the option to set Reverse DNS for every IP alocated on my server, and for now all the websites (30) shares the same IP ..
Any advices ? 10x
The error message is telling you exactly what your client needs to do. Since you don't host his mail server, you have no control over the rDNS for the IP's attached to that mail server.
Your client needs to contact whoevers hosting his mail server & get them to add rDNS for its IP's
ohhh .. 10x .. I didn't think about that I thought I'm the one who should do something. I get it now.
