Hello,

since probably beginning of December, I have severe problems
receiving emails from the torque and maui mailing lists. Our mail
server refuses to accept any emails from supercluster.org because
of a missing PTR Resource Record in DNS. Because of the missing
PTR, reverse DNS lookups do not work for supercluster.org's IP.

Jan 16 11:01:58 bolte82 postfix-rz-in/smtpd[26316]: NOQUEUE: reject:
RCPT from unknown[68.178.11.139]: 550 5.7.1 Client host rejected:
cannot find your reverse hostname, [68.178.11.139];
from=<torqueusers-bounces at supercluster.org>
to=<thomas.zeiser at rrze.uni-erlangen.de> proto=SMTP
helo=<http.supercluster.org>


$ host supercluster.org
supercluster.org has address 68.178.11.139
supercluster.org mail is handled by 0 supercluster.org.
supercluster.org mail is handled by 10 clusterresources.com.


$ nslookup 68.178.11.139
** server can't find 139.11.178.68.in-addr.arpa.: NXDOMAIN


Google's Public DNS servers tells exactly the same:

$ nslookup 68.178.11.139 - 8.8.8.8
Server:         8.8.8.8
Address:        8.8.8.8#53
** server can't find 139.11.178.68.in-addr.arpa.: NXDOMAIN


Thus, it does not seem to be a local issue at our side but
something Adaptive Computing (or who ever owns supercluster.org)
has to fix.


Kind regards,

Thomas Zeiser
