No, it's not a problem, it's standard practice that email admins are finally figuring out. Simple, in my domain if I can't do a reverse DNS lookup on you, I'm blocking you.

Went back to ISP and they say it is a Yahoo problem. Apparently the work around was to allow Exchange use DNS to resolve and send mails rather than an IP address. They say quite a few ISP's are experiencing this problem. "Gabriel E.

If your DNS provider does NOT have a reverse DNS, yahoo,hotmail, gmail WILL NOT WORK.

Do you have rDNS records set up for your mail server in the outside world?

Well we put that server into production this weekend and now I get to fight the fires. In recent testing I discovered that emails going out to my yahoo.com email address are not being received, but emails sent to my charter.net email address are!?! Any suggestions on what I should look for? I looked in my DNS table and I see no problems. I have an external webhosting company - acomhosting.com and we did have email going through their site, in fact my users still have the POP3 definition in their Outlook setup, but it is at the bottom below our Mailbox. Why one SMTP email client and not another? John Technology Applied _____ The information in this communication and any attachments is confidential and may be legally privileged.
