DNS Manager / Re: I use freedns but I cant send or recive email.

Did you try rebuilding the mail server?  Your reverse dns zone look up is not set properly. Lastly, be sure your PTR record set by the ISP are for your actual hostname and not your virtual host.

I know it has been a while but I also ran into the same issue. DNS can take a little while to update but couple things here:

1) is your webserver behind NAT?
In case your server is behind NAT you would have to set your name server using your private IP address.

2) Don't forget to configure both: your loca and public IP in CWP settings in check the NAT-ed settings.

rDNS/PTR has to be set by your hosting provider or your ISP. I ran into the same issue and bang my head on the wall contineously (fiuratively speaking).

Your reverse DNS zone look up is what is causing the failure. I use ATT&T uverse whereas I lease a block of public IP's. Tech support would not be of great help but they do have a DNS team a form which can easily be completed online. The PTR record has to be set for your hostname i.e:

In the event you have a VPS or dedicated at a hosting provider, they will have to set that up for you.

The application is locally hosted using VirtualBox

The server is placed behind a firewall using static NAT. The address is NATED to 68.XXX.XXX.X (PUBLIC IP - 1:1 NAT)

DNS Functions --> list DNS zones --> check DNS I get the following error:
rDNS/PTR record check: FAILED
rDNS/PTR = FAILED, check with your hosting provider!
rDNS A record = [Check SenderBase] [Check RBL]

Checking with google if domain is hosted on this server: SUCCESS

1) Created Reverse DNS zone from Shell. BIND to failed.
2) Created  Zone using CWP7 GUI under which I listed 2 PTR records: one for the hostname and the other for the domain.
i) BIND Did not fail and restarted successfuly.
ii) the rDNS/PRT record check however failed.

Note: Valid A record for Hostname and PTR Record exist.

Given the scenario above, my question is as follow: How does one create a reverse zone look up in the var/named/ directory successfuly in CWP7?
