Thread: how to deal with ptr records and getting classified as spam under the http://workaround.org/articles/ispmail-etch/ -config

  1. how to deal with ptr records and getting classified as spam under the http://workaround.org/articles/ispmail-etch/ -config

    i followed the great article on
    http://workaround.org/articles/ispmail-etch/

    But i found issues regarding my server getting treated as a source of spam
    mail.

    I have followed the tutorial almost to the letter.
    I have domain1.com and domain2.com

    I setup up everything iwth domain1.com - but Randell (guy on this forum)
    helped me out greatly - he discovered that my router's ip did not have a ptr
    record --- this caused yahoo.com and gmail to treat my server as spam.

    One problem solved --- thanks Randall.

    Today's issue is that i want to setup a 2nd domain name to send emails out
    on.
    The configuration on http://workaround.org/articles/ispmail-etch/ works
    perfectly.
    The issue comes up is that yahoo and gmail treat me like spam for that
    domain name.
    So i figured let me create the same ptr records for my router and my server.

    That was a mistake -- no i am getting treated like spam when i send out from
    both domains= domain1.com and domain2.com



    please help
    thanks

    Please configure your mailer to wrap lines below 80 characters per line...
    the following paragraph was wrapped very ugly

    The IP address your mails are coming from (as remote servers see it) needs
    to have correct PTR pointing to a name that points to the same IP back.

    e.g. 195.168.3.66 -> fantomas.fantomas.sk -> 195.168.3.66

    Note that the hostname does NOT need to be in the domain you send mail from,
    it only has to look correct, and not generic if possible - some servers
    reject mail from hostnames like 195.168.3.66.fantomas.sk and similar.

    (I'm pointing this out because I've got many similar complaints about this -
    they were all bogus of course.)

    Unluckily you did not provide what exactly did you do. I can only guess that
    you set up more or incorrect PTR records, that made mailservers reject mail
    from you.
