Reverse DNS not found - postfix, ubuntu, LEMP

January 25, 2014 2.4k views
Hello, I've been trying to set my mail up for the past 3 days...seems to be mostly working, but mail is being sent to spam folder a lot of times. One issue I'm trying to fix is reverse DNS. If i run a check: host it returns "Host not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)" hostname returns "ns1" hostname f- returns "" I've created an A record: my.ip.address My Cname is: www @ I have two MX records: 10 (using for mail) 10 TXT record: "v=hotmail,etc" Also an SRV and DO's NS x 3 My mail.log and mail.err do not have any recent errors. I"m new to this and just can't figure out what's causing the issues. I can post my config files or anything else if they're helpful. Thanks!

Are you actually hosting your own nameserver? This article should give you some hints on getting your DNS set up using DigitalOcean's nameservers.

If you use your domain name as your droplet's host name, DigitalOcean's reverse DNS system set it up automatically..
