    I have a small query..

    I have cPanel Installed.
    My MX Record is mydomain.com

    and the reverse PTR record for the IP is set as server.mydomain.com

    Should I change the Reverse PTR record as mydomain.com for proper mail delivery ?
    If there is any information please kindly provide me regarding this

    Hello :)

    No, it's normal for the PTR record to match the hostname of the server rather than the hostname associated with the MX record.

    Thank you.
