Re: DNS Settings for multiple domains

I just figured it out. In IBM's dns settings I needed to set the record as _dmarc TXT 900 v=DMARC1; p=reject; rua=mailto:postmaster@123.com Now I get this message Info : We have found a custom address in your DMARC record. Please make sure to forward the incoming reports to your custom address to se...

Re: DNS Settings for multiple domains

OK.

I have to create a subdomain named _dmark.123.com? I didn't know that. The dmark record is just as I had it listed. And it is listed in the 123.com domain.

Re: DNS Settings for multiple domains

OK, Your spf record doesn't have IP addresses in it. Mine looks like this.
For my second domain 123.com, The IP address is for xyz.com, my main domain name.
@ TXT v=spf1 a mx ip4:10.10.10.2 -all
MAIL TXT v=spf1 a mx ip4:10.10.10.2 -all

Should I just remove the IP address?

Re: New DNSBL designed for hMailServer

So I just added 2 more entries in dnsbl for spamdonkey.com so that 127.0.0.3 has a score of 5, 127.0.0.4 has a score of 10 and 127.0.0.5 has a score of 15. And I set up greylisting as you suggested. That should be correct right?

That is correct Johang. I have it working so I can log into my own smtp server on port 465 now and send out from my mail server now. But some of my customers are still using optimum's smtp server and that works also. Thanks for all your help.

Thank you. Was trying to add it in the dnsbl and not sure how to enter the 127.0.0.1 to 127.0.0.5. If I add 127.0.0.1-5 will that block all of them? I don't think I would want that.
