    Hi. This is the qmail-send program at mail.roothost.org.
    I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
    This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

    <removed@craigslist.org>:
    208.82.236.161 does not like recipient.
    Remote host said: 554 5.7.1 <unknown[209.40.204.186]>: Client host rejected:
    rDNS/DNS validation failed. Please setup matching DNS and rDNS records:

    Giving up on 208.82.236.161.

    You are correct, you need to setup reverse DNS. Contact VPSLink Support and file a support ticket.

    Login to the VPSlink CP. In the menu there's an option for DNS.
