    Hello Everyone -

    I apologize for my ignorance, but I can't seem to figure out how to get reverse dns working properly, which is proving to be a problem with my mail server (spam filters are killing my emails).

    I have registered my nameservers through, and all of my forward dns seems to work fine, but when I do

    dig -x 'public ip'

    it finds no records. I have read on the forums that this may be caused by my internet provider not providing reverse dns records, so naturally I tried

    dig -x 'private ip'

    but same results.

    I don't know were to go from here. I'm not even sure what relevant information I should be posting so that I may receive help from the forum.

    Please let me know if any of you have any suggestions. Thank you.
