Our SMTP IP has been blocked by Gmail.
We have done the research and it appears that Google does not allow to unblock IP’s from their RBL list
To solve the issue we are thinking about changing the IP for the SMTP server only.
Is this possible? How can we do this?
I have looked around the Nodeworx CP, docs, and forums but I cannot find a way to do this and solve the issue.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Please see this post, which IW Paul explains lovely.
Sorry, I also meant to say if your ipv6 has no RDNS, I suspect this is where it is been rejected.
I could be wrong though, so sorry
Thank for your prompt reply
I did add the IP to /var/qmail/control/bindroutes as instructed by Paul’s post above.
I restarted smtp also.
But if I do dns tests from http://www.dnsstuff.com/
The smtp headers still show the old IP
How can I fix it and test that it is effectively sending SMTP on the new IP?
I have added the new IP under IP Management and have it as “Dedicated”
I hope you don’t mind but it sounds as though your confusing with mx record of domain.
I don’t think dnsstuff has a function to test the outgoing ip of a mail server, sorry I could be wrong and we use dnsstuff on a daily basis.
The easiest way we test for ip used for sending is to send an email to a test account and look at the headers.
If you want to pm me, I’ll pm you my email address so you can send a test email to me and I’ll confirm the sending ip.
I hope that helps a little
