    Got an email that our server resolves to "." and should resolve to our IP address. A records all appear correct, however resolv.conf shows the IP address of our host. Is it supposed to show the IP address of our server, and if so, can I just edit and save and it'll be fixed or does the host have to do anything. It's a dedicated box so I can do it myself if necessary

    Ok so the resolv.conf is not the issue. And the A records and DNS zones appear correct, so is there any other reason we'd be getting these emails?

    If you provide the hostname for the server, we can check whether it's properly resolving.

    Also, the resolv.conf might be the issue if your host's IP is caching results. You can always change /etc/resolv.conf to one of the public DNS nameservers such as Google's or Level 3's as mentioned in the post that I provided.
