Comment Report Abuse (Score 5, Informative) 128

As an email system administrator for a Canadian university, we also see Google docs being increasingly used for phishing. We've also noticed Google's response to abuse reports has also improved considerably. If a few people submit an abuse report on a form, it will now usually get suspended in a matter of hours, where it used to take over a day. Unfortunately, those first few hours are the most critical when it comes to reacting to phishing.

You don't have to choose the record. The ISP just has to ensure that the PTR for an IP resolves to a name, and the A for that name resolves to the original IP. The name can be completely up to them and doesn't even need to reflect the domain for which you're sending mail. However it should avoid using a name that makes it appear to be a dynamic IP, which some receivers may penalize you for.
