In the past I had no trouble sending email to any server even on a shared IP. However, lately I've noticed some of the really large providers have their servers set to not allow email from domains that do not have PTR's.

WHM does not create PTR's by default. I may present this to cPanel also for a possible upgrade in furture versions.

Fortunately, since my network move I have all my domains on IP based Hosting.

I have never set PTR's in the past so when I added them to my DNS I hope I did them correctly. In WHM I simply went into edit DNS, chose the domain, selected PTR, then added the IP on the left and the domain on the right with a full stop on the end.

On any server intending to send mail you should set your PTR and RDNS at your provider the IP with hosted with. Then send an email to mail-tester.com and make sure you get a 10/10 rating.

Nowadays, providers like Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail etc won't accept emails if there is no PTR/rDNS record for an IP address so you've to setup it at the server provider's end.
