i have remote access to my windows server 2008 r2(DNS-IIS-FTP-MAIL),
please see the link below for my web site :
http://www.intodns.com/polyafzar.com

how can i fix the error below in my server :

ERROR: No reverse DNS (PTR) entries. The problem MX records are:
234.60.7.31.in-addr.arpa -> no reverse (PTR) detected
233.60.7.31.in-addr.arpa -> no reverse (PTR) detected
You should contact your ISP and ask him to add a PTR record for your ips

thanks in advance

Looks like it's not a problem on your machine: it's a limitation of the destination SMTP server that will refuse mail if you haven't setup an rDNS record. –  Stephane Dec 15 '11 at 14:02
    
hi Stephane, so is it necessary to add some new records into my dns or not(or change something in my dns)? besides i did n't install SMTP Server Feature in my server(is there any relationship between that error and this feature?). –  MoonLight Dec 15 '11 at 14:07

Just like it says:

"You should contact your ISP and ask him to add a PTR record for your ips"

You have to get whomever looks after your hosting to provide rDNS records in order to eliminate this error.

"You should contact your ISP and ask him to add a PTR record for your ips". Are you your ISP? If so, you can do it. If not, then you need to do what the instructions say :) –  jdw Dec 15 '11 at 14:15
