Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (JAMES-746) Reverse DNS Lookup Fails for Virtual Accounts
Date Mon, 18 Dec 2006 21:11:48 GMT
To be more concrete:

- The ipaddress of your mailserver needs a reverse dns entry.
- This reverse dns entry should be equals to the A record which point to
the ipaddress of your mailserver
- This A record should be used as mx record
- This A record should be used as heloname

If you will solve all the points there should be no problem ;-)

bye
Norman

ensure its not an old mail that is bouncing).

>>> My server runs multiple domains. I use the JDBC Virtual Host mailet. Everything
normally works fine, but if the user sends email to AOL or other picky domains, the mails
bounce, and it complains rDNS is not set correctly. Searching on sites like www.dnsstuff.com
I am sure that the reverse DNS is configured properly. It seems that AOL looks at the server
name given in the protocol, as opposed to the "from" address, and does a  reverse lookup and
compares to that name. But that name is taken from the server name, not the virtual account
name, so at best I can get one domain to work if I give the server the same name as that one
domain.
>>> James should be putting the domain name from the users account into the protocol,
not the server name, if it truly supports virtual hosting.
