How do I setup a PTR Record?
I am running an email server and my outgoing emails are finding themselves in the recipient’s spam box.
After diving into the issue.. I am seeing that the issue is coming from being unable to do a reverse DNS lookup.
I’ve added all the appropriate mail records (A, MX, TXT) and am still coming across this issue.
This is what I am seeing from www.intodns.com/americanglassandmirror.com
Reverse MX A records (PTR) ERROR: No reverse DNS (PTR) entries. The problem MX records are:
126.96.36.199.in-addr.arpa -> no reverse (PTR) detected
You should contact your ISP and ask him to add a PTR record for your ips
Can you clue me in on what I could be missing here?
