You mean HelpDesk at your local ISP doesn't know what thier doing?
Nahhh, never heard of that before...  ha ha
 
We have a consultant in a near by town that provides Exchange services
via an ASP model that is the same way, actually had to tutor them on how
to setup thier system so they could send mail to us.

If you are moving your domain name registrar for reverse lookup support,
then you are wasting your money. 
The reverse lookup is set by the owner of the IP address. It is
basically a lookup on the IP to see if it matches what your server is
announcing itself as. 
 
Many of the first line support people at ISPs here the words "DNS" and
tell you to go to your domain name registrar, because they don't
understand the difference between conventional (forward) DNS which
matches name to an IP address, and reverse DNS, which matches IP address
to the name.

Ah okay.. That explains it. I am in the process of moving our domain
from Network Solutions to Register.com because NS refuses to support
reverse MX lookup (PTR). Sigh.

I recently had the same problem and was able to fix it by having my ISP
create a PTR for my mail server.

You may contact your ISP and make sure that the reverse lookup record
exists and is correct.

A couple of issues:

 

Some emails are not going out because "The remote server did not respond
to a connection attempt", and "Unable to bind the destination server in
DNS". How do I fix this problem? Thanks

Andrew
