    Sendmail Server Blacklisted


    I have a server that is running sendmail, but only relays the mail to other servers. Though the other servers are blacklisting it because it is sending the "Helo my IP is" and not "Helo my hostname is". I have no clue how to change this in sendmail.

    I have checked the hosts file and resolve.conf and everything seems to be fine.

    Thanks in advance.

    How do you connect to the net? Unless you have a fixed IP address
    and a domain name, it will be difficult to persuade people to allow your
    server to talk to theirs. The net isn't as friendly as it used to be.

    Thanks for the response, but it is working now, thank God. The problem was the reverse lookup, it had already been fixed, it just took some time to get it off the blacklist.

    Also, I am connected with a fixed IP and a domain.

    Hello

    I'm trying to setup a mail server. But my ips are blacklisted.

    Problem is that i have a dynamic ip, but i do have a domain(hypertriangle.com), is there a way to make other servers accept mail from my server?

    Here's my topic: http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/ser...s-blocked.html
