Forgive the slightly off topic post (MIMEDefang not involved on this 

I am trying to set up a mail relay for internal use but I do not want it 
to check reverse DNS for PTR records.  Firewall will prevent outside 
systems from connecting to it.  Searching the web, I find lots of sites 
telling me how to enable rDNS, but later versions do it by default.  I 
need to turn it off.

This is a replacement server, with no easy way to gather what clients are 
connecting to it.  The powers that control the DNS server do not want to 
populate the reverse data files with generic PTR records, so I can either 
break things until I can get PTR records in place, or ignore them. 

I really hate breaking things!
