Reverse DNS For Subdomain

October 24, 2013 2.7k views
We run our main site off a subdomain and are getting emails (sent with sendmail) bounced with error: 554 IP name lookup failed. No PTR record found. It looks like the fix is to rename the droplet to the correct hostname. https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/dns https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/how-do-you-update-reverse-dns My question is whether my hostname should be site.com or prod.site.com, remember that people access prod.site.com. One of those links says mail.site.com.

Rename your droplet to mail.site.com and create an A record for mail.site.com
