Having the correct country in your registration at Internic is a good idea,
but will NOT solve this problem. You must get your reverse lookup working
in your DNS. My guess is you don't have authority over the zone. You have to request it from whoever you got
your Class C from. Then you have to have BIND setup correctly so that
you're the primary for that reverse domain. Microsoft attempts to find your
host name from the IP address to verify that you are indeed a domestic
customer and not from out of the country. If you don't have reverse lookup
working, they can't find you.
