comment trouble with postfix install (timing out from client)
That was a good link, but the documentation was for their cloud servers, and as support explained to me, "In next gen that is done via the API." They pointed me back to a server fault solution link and to a script on github link. Both of which were either out of date or otherwise broken. They ultimately did the switch for me, but they linked me to the script they used link. Thanks again, Gryph!

Gryph, you rock. I was just trying to figure out the rdns stuff, because in fact AOL is already flagging my outgoing as "spam." I added a SPF rule (v=spf1 mx ~all) to the DNS, hoping that might make a difference, but nyet. Where is the rdns changed, my research suggested it was something only rackspace could change.

Thanks. Mail server hardening is serious stuff, but I kinda got thrown into this so need to get it right. I'm scouring the tutorials and documentation (Ubuntu community pretty great for that). But would you recommend any specific critical tweaks to ensure my resources aren't commandeered by some shlub in Brazil, getting my whole domain blacklisted? <again cough cough>

If I had said I was on SBC/U-Verse, maybe that answer would have been even more obvious. I didn't realize they blocked that, but apparently they do. I enabled port 587 by uncommenting the appropriate line in master.cf. Will that automatically block 25 from incoming access, or is that something that should be done in the iptable? Or do I not need to worry about that to harden my server?

The local machine was apparently blocked on outgoing 25. So I greatly appreciate your fast and helpful answer, Gryph.
