understand your problem. Whether or not you pay any attention to DKIM
and/or SPF on inbound mail is a private choice and should be beyond
their ability to check. Whether or not your VPS has an IP address with a
PTR record (sometimes called "Reverse DNS") is probably under their
control (i.e. not yours) and should not have any connection to whether
or not you can receive email. However, it is not entirely unreasonable
for a hosting provider to recommend or ever require that customers
publish DNS records for SPF and DKIM which can be used to validate their
outbound mail and provide a legitimate name for a PTR record in order to
*send* mail from a VPS.
