Title: rDNS of MX ???
Post by: jdisnard on June 04, 2011, 11:19:45 AM
I'm trying to complete the "Professional" tests.
Is the solution to wait, or perhaps there is something I can do?

I'm using godaddy for now, but have begun looking at the Free DNS offered by he.net.
Made some entries, etc.... nothing authoritative.
Could that be the problem?

Regardless, the DNS is correct externally.



Thanks,

What are you querying for?  It looks like your mx server has an AAAA address, but your nameservers don't.

What are you querying for?  It looks like your mx server has an AAAA address, but your nameservers don't.



When I attempt the "PROFESSIONAL" certification test:
The step I'm doing is:

Quote
Check if your mail server has working rDNS

 I'm confronted with:

Quote
"Your MX does not appear to have working RDNS".

I suppose you have revealed an important clue about the nameservers?  :)

To solve for that problem I have two options:

* Move to the Free he.net DNS, or

* Setup my own DNS servers.

Sorry, it's been too long since I've taken the tests and I don't remember which test requires you to do what.

I get the reverse lookup for your mx record with no problems...you might want to email ipv6@he.net and let them know...normally when this happens they have to kick the cache
