Forward-DNS does NOT match Reverse-DNS?

MUfferman
Our website (www.zionshope.org) is hosted at Hosting.com on IP address 208.112.59.19 but my e-mail is totally separate and channeled via Embarq T-1 line to our office at IP address 209.26.204.134. We send out 15,000 e-mails a month from our office Exchange Server (209.26.204.134) to people who have specifically subscribed to our newsletter.
As I understand it, we're currently blacklisted in some places and have found this as the reason, "WARNING: Forward-DNS does NOT match Reverse-DNS."
My forward-DNS for Zion's Hope is: 209.26.204.134 (the Embarq T-1 line for e-mail).
My reverse-DNS (PTR) exists and states it is: zionshope.org
My Zion's Hope website IP is: 208.112.59.19
Everything above is legitimate. The Forwarding and Reverse DNSes will never match. How do I resolve the problem without reconfiguring my IP addresses or hosting site?
Thanx for any help you can render.

If it were trivial for you to make your non-matching reverse DNS work, then all the more so for the spammers of the world. Either yours has to be changed to match, or you need to use a third-party mail sender.

You can be blacklisted for any of the fail/warning messages.

I second the recommendation to use dyndns. Ever since I went with them a slew of troubles disappeared and things have purred along like a box full of happy kittens.
