    Hi

    When I view my servers hostname on dnsreport I get the following errors:


    The contents of the zone file are:

    Code:

    $TTL 14400
    @       86400   IN      SOA     ns1.fishsense.co.uk.    myemail.domain.com       (

    This should take care of the the warnings

    change this:
    fishsense.co.uk. 14400 IN MX 0 mail.fishsense.co.uk.
    to this:
    fishsense.co.uk. 14400 IN MX 0 fishsense.co.uk.

    See if you can ping the domain you are mailing to or look up its
    mx record and see if you connect via telnet from your server.

    dig domain.com mx

    telnet domain.com 25

    I have the same problem. Below is the result from DNSReport. What could be the problem?

    --------------------------------------------------------
    WARNING: One or more of your mailservers is claiming to be a host other than what it really is (the SMTP greeting should be a 3-digit code, followed by a space or a dash, then the host name). If your mailserver sends out E-mail using this domain in its EHLO or HELO, your E-mail might get blocked by anti-spam software. This is also a technical violation of RFC821 4.3 (and RFC2821 4.3.1). Note that the hostname given in the SMTP greeting should have an A record pointing back to the same server. Note that this one test may use a cached DNS record.

    webpages-online.com claims to be invalid hostname '************************************************************************************** 220-********************************************************************* 220':
    220-************************************************************************************** 220-******** *******************
