    rDNS

    I think that the problem whith rDNS is a little bit confusing.

    In a shared environment with multiple email users which is the proper rDNS?

    For example : if the FQDN of the server is fgdn.server.com the rDNS entry must be the same ?

    Yeah it's good practice to do that. See here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forward...ed_reverse_DNS

    Yes, it's usually used by providers to name the server. Whether it be "srv1", "nyc1", or "civic", it is usually how the provider names the server, every one is different.

    rDNS is usual a combination of the IP and hostname.
