XF 1.5 Default email transport method with hotmail


Well-known member

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.

Junk Email Reporting program (JMRP) When an Outlook.com user marks an email as "junk", senders enrolled in this program get a copy of the mail forwarded to the email address of their choice. It allows senders to see which mails are being marked as junk and to identify mail traffic you did not intend to send.
