XF 1.5 Default email transport method with hotmail

    I have just noticed that if I try to register in my forum using a hotmail account, the confirmation email never gets delivered to my inbox.

    I am using default email transport method with enabled "Set return path with -f parameter".

    Then out of curiosity, I tried to send a very simple email using php mail() function from the server, and still no email gets delivered to hotmail addresses (gmail/yahoo works fine).

    Upon searching, I have found numerous results in google citing issues with hotmail delivery.

    Have you guys faced the similar issue?

    Thanks Brogan. Is there any possibility that it should work if I use Google SMTP instead. I have Google Apps setup for my domain.

    As per some comments in internet, it might take forever to get a reply from microsoft in this matter.

    Microsoft has various services that help you get your ip address unblocked. You should join them.
