PTR Record

I am currently trying to setup home mail servers for myself. I need to have my PTR record changed so that it connects to my FQDN of the mail server rather than the what it is linked to automatically by Spectrum.

Could anyone help me with how I would go about doing this?

Thank you.

    One issue you'll run into trying to host a mail server, is that your IP will be listed in the Spamhaus ZEN blacklist, so you won't be able to send mail to any server that uses that as a blocker.

    Another will be the lack of an rDNS entry.
