comment How should I set up my PTR Record?
@Henry Wrinkle Were you are to set this up? what galador might be saying is that the PTR is not set at the DNS zone for example.com, but rather at your ISP's zone.

Is there a diagram for this? This thing is really confusing everywhere I read.

comment Overview of multiple mx server set up
Thanks! I wish I could up vote more! Appreciate that you understood my question eventhough it could have been badly formed due to my lack of knowledge. e.g. existing infrastructure does not "gather" or "pull", but rather MTAs "forward" or "push" emails to MDA. That's why it was put in qoutes from onstart.

comment Overview of multiple mx server set up
Sorry if I wasn't clear but BillThor got exactly what I needed. I wasn't trying to discuss, because I am not good enough, I was just hoping you can tell me how it work. For example bill confirms "... as pop is the MDA and has the email to be read, it must be up when you want to read email..." cos' there's a lot of talk about multiple mx but very few multiple pop so I wasn't sure if I understood the situation correctly. that's why I asked.

comment Overview of multiple mx server set up
Thanks mailq. The "gathering" I was asking about is the central mailbox or forwarding that you said. But in the former case, where is this central store located normally? Is it on a different server entirely? What if this central store server is down?

comment Does a PTR record prove anything about the sender's email domain?
@ewwhite I had read the AOL page but I still did not think it is any useful with regards to anti-spam by checking if the sending IP has a hostname. That is probably why many ISP still do not allow residential users to set up mail servers at home.

Want to say a big thank you to all who spent time posting answers and comments at length to help me. I would give more up votes if I could. Thanks.

@TomTom I know I just have to do it. But I am still not convinced of the value of checking the PTR!! Must be missing some important link.
