SMTP; 554 Refused. Your IP address is listed in the RBL at dyna.spamrats.com


hello,
i have a REHL 5.4 server.i am trying to send mail to my company`s/yahoo account using
Code:
mailx -s "subject" user@company.com
I am getting a rebounce mail
Code:
Diagnostic-Code: SMTP; 554 Refused. Your IP address is listed in the RBL at dyna.spamrats.com
.

When visited the url dyna.spamrats.com,it stated that the reverse dns is not congigured and that is why it has put my ip in the blacklist.

how to remove my ip from the blacklist??????

Hi,

According to the message you got, you should fix the reverse dns record (PTR) of your mail server. That means that your IP must resolve to a hostname.

Regards

You can use this site, or from command line run:
Code:
dig -x x.x.x.x

That means that your ip resolves to 204.55.44.22.static.vsnl.net.in. But only the name server at 200.51.00.2 can resolve it.
From my side, I cannot resolve that ip
Code:
dig -x 204.55.44.22

; <<>> DiG 9.7.0 <<>> -x 204.55.44.22
;; global options: +cmd
;; Got answer:

;; WHEN: Tue Mar 16 10:46:26 2010

and of course the same goes for all other name servers.
You may ask your ISP, or whoever is responsible for your dns to fix it.

You ip address must be resolvable from the internet if you intend to run a mail server. Now only the name server at 200.51.00.2 can resolve it and that name server is not reachable from outside
Code:
dig -x 204.55.44.22 @200.51.00.2

; <<>> DiG 9.7.0 <<>> -x 204.55.44.22 @200.51.00.2
;; global options: +cmd
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
If 200.51.00.2 (is it your ISP dns server?) is authoritative for your subnet, you should describe them this situation.
