Here's an header from a testing email sent to gmail from my mail server. I changed Hostname from ads.jeuxgratuits.net to mail.jeuxgratuits.net so that my email header show consistent information... but even after the change I stil got a reference to ads.jeuxgratuits.net:

Received: from mail.jeuxgratuits.net (ads.jeuxgratuits.net [208.111.94.17])
    by mx.google.com with ESMTP id 12si2715274iwn.15.2009.10.15.13.40.35;

I used webmin to change the server hostname. Then I restarted network and postfix services.

Full header:

Your DNS is bad : 208.111.94.17 17.94.111.208.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer ads.jeuxgratuits.net.

So you need to change your DNS and wait for propagation

Please state your answer in the form of a question... :)

The Received: line is picking up the old name from a reverse DNS lookup.
