Continued mail server problems for all PGSQL mailing lists I'm on

I'm actually getting the mailing list mail, so I don't know what the deal is.
Successful deliveries are coming from 64.117.225.209. But 207.173.200.206 has
big problems. Sendmail is misconfigured in at least two ways. DNS is not
even configured at all for reverse DNS. I can't whitelist the sender email
addresses because spammers already use them. I can't whitelist the IP address
because you guys keep changing them. I can't whitelist the server domain
because the reverse DNS isn't set up yet (it takes me less than 5 minutes to
set that up). I'm sure the list operators are experts in PostgreSQL. I'm
not. But at least I don't pretend to be. Maybe you should ask some experts
in running mailing lists, mail servers, and DNS servers, to give you a hand.

207.173.200.206? We aren't using that server for relaying ... we *are*
using: 207.173.200.143, which does reverse:

%nslookup 207.173.200.143
Server: neptune.hub.org
Address: 64.117.224.130

Name: hosting.commandprompt.com
Address: 207.173.200.143

Joshua, are there multiple IPs on that box that he might be seeing?

206 is another one of our machines, which I am requesting they fix the
reverse mapping. Different machine, different purpose.

Not sure why/how you shoud be getting any issues from that machine on
this list.

Can you forward me the email that was sent to you from said ip?

Thanks,

Robby

My first guess is that the machine we are using @ CommandPrompt as a relay
point has multiple IPs on it, and the outbound IP is being seen as 206,
while we're sending i through 143 ...


FWIW, the headers of your email contain the following:

From pg******************************************@postg resql.org Sun Aug 10 09:27:21 2003

Hope this helps,

Yes it is because it is behind a firewall. See my other response. For
some reason our reverse DNS
request is being delayed. I actually made the request the same day you
made yours (usually it is same day).
I will double check with them on Monday.
