I need to add a PTR record. Reading through previous posts, the suggestion seems to be to change droplets name to FQDN (domain.com, for example). I did change the name of the droplet a few hours ago - the issues still persist.

Any suggestions?

Great question. I checked for you and I was able to confirm that your droplet IP does have a correct PTR set based on the rename that you did. You’re probably just seeing some stubborn cache from ISP DNS servers or something, making it take a bit too long for you to see the result.

You can run the IP here to see the same results that I did: https://mxtoolbox.com/ReverseLookup.aspx
