Some servers (very few I might add) ignore rDNS lookups and will deliver it anyway, however most do so it is very important to set it properly.

Peoples should learn how to find propper setup for reverse DNS resolution.
In case name of your domain is 'mydomain-test.co.uk'. Your reverse should look like the same. Possible: 'mail.mydomain-test.co.uk' or exactly 'mydomain-test.co.uk'. You can't add random text or whatever sounds good to you
In case you take 'i-love-flowers.co.uk' instead 'mydomain-test.co.uk'. You try to sent mail to my domain --> result is: your mail will never ever arrive at my servers because IP's resolution is 'mydomain-test.co.uk' and your server will answer by reverse solution with 't-love-flowers.co.uk' what definately doesn't match...
I hope you understand what I intend to explain you

The point of a rDNS is so the IP points to your domain and the domain points to your IP so e-mail servers can verify its not spoofed.

You can do it through the manager. Often you will put your domain name as the reverse dns. Some people put "servername.domain.com" as their rDNS to identify it.

As for me I put "roubaix.domain.co.uk" as my rDNS.
