    You will have to ask your web host OR the DC team to set the rDNS OR PTR record on server IP & point it to server hostname.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the answer. So is it not server side issue then?

    No, as per the message it is the reverse DNS that has to be set. It can be set by web host OR DC team as IP's will be in their ownership.
