we setup a mail server in our local office using Mdaemon Mail Server . We have a Staic ip 123.xxx.123.xxx ( as an example ) and all necessary ports (80 , 25 , 110 ) are made open .
We have a domain abc.com which is not hosted anywhere planning host at our server only after our mail server issue solved ( at port 80 - apache http server ). We have DNS settings made at one of free DNS service provider ( zonomi.com ).
In Zonomi - ( dns service provider) our domain abc.com has following dns records .
IP Addresses (A)
abc.com points to 123.xxx.123.xxx
mail.abc.com points to 123.xxx.123.xxx
Mail Servers (MX)
mail.abc.com -> abc.com
Name Servers (NS)
ns1.zonomi.com handles DNS for abc.com
ns2.zonomi.com handles DNS forabc.com
after finishing this settings we tried running our mail server but most mails were blocked at gmail , yahoo etc . then we come to know our rdns( reverse dns / ptr not matching )
current static ip 123.xxx.123.xxx rdns check points to 123.xxx.123.xxx.vsnl.net(our ISP - vsnl ) ....
where as our forward dns look up shows
123.xxx.123.xxx - abc.com ( or mail.abc.com ?)
Now we finaly decided to ask our ISP to do necessary change in to our PTR / rDNS setting to point our domain(abc.com or mail.abc.com ) so my question is
what are details i should need to give to my ISP to do Necessary settings on rDNS at its end
ex like domain name , ns records details etc ?
and one more thing
we set up A record abc.com to 123.xxx.123.xxx & mail.abc.com also to 123.xxx.123.xxx and my mx records mail.bac.com to handle abc.com mails
so I want to know what is exact rDNS value abc.com or mail.abc.com should be point against our static IP 123.xxx.123.xxx
what should i tell to my ISP to put in rdns value abc.com or mail.abc.com ????
