Thanks! This is great news (which I hadn't received in any earlier mail).
Regarding the PTR records that CSV uses: These are NOT records in
in-addr.arpa -- they are NOT reverse DNS records.
If set up on a bind server, they would go in a zone's zone file just
like a typical A record for www.domain.dom.
I.e. (from http://www.jlc.net/MARID/CSV/FAQ.html):
* */Q: How does a sender implement CSV? /*
A: Add the SRV record at _client._smtp.<EHLO-domain> as described
* */Q: What does that look like in "bind" format? /*
A: I advertise the DNS SRV as:
mailhost IN A <MTA IP address>
IN PTR _vouch._smtp.csv_vouch
_client._smtp.mailhost SRV 1 2 0 mailhost
dig mailhost.jlc.net PTR
mailhost.jlc.net. 7200 IN PTR
_vouch._smtp.csv_vouch.jlc.net. 7200 IN A 22.214.171.124)
nslookup -sil -type=PTR mailhost.jlc.net
mailhost.jlc.net name = _vouch._smtp.csv_vouch.jlc.net.
Let me know if I can help clarify things further.

electrons to convey:
Dear Mr. Elvey,
Thank you for your email. We apologize if you did not receive a response
on an earlier email. In regards to your comments about needing the ability
to setup custom TXT records for email authentication, our new DNS Manager
system does allow for the creation of both TXT and SPF records. Due to the
requirements to correctly setup reverse DNS, we do not allow for the creation
of PTR records within our DNS management system.
Please take a look at our new DNS system if you have not already, and let
us know if you have any other suggestions for types of records that we should
add, as we are always looking to upgrade the usability of our services.

Hi. I attended the FTC Email Authentication Summit, where I heard and
spoke with GoDaddy manager Mike Chadwick.
Mike suggested I email you about an issue with Email Authentication
Go Daddy-registered domains.
Currently, even when 'Total DNS Control' is enabled, one cannot set up
records to comply with the leading
Email Authentication proposals - SPF and CSV. Can you please remedy
this ASAP? Mike said
"Godaddy believes that customers need the ability to protect their
so please make this possible by making it possible to set up SPF and
records (i.e. TXT, SRV and PTR records).
Thanks in advance! And let me know if you have any questions about
what's needed or why. I'm happy to clarify.
