Hotmail blocking E-mail!



Well I have been fielding e-mails from people voting at the 2006 People’s Choice Podcast Awards, seems Hotmail thinks the verification e-mail we are sending is spam and has blocked all e-mail coming from the podcastawards.com domain.

This happened last year as well, I understand companies trying to protect their customers from spamming but we are 100% in compliance in all e-mail we have sent, yet they are blocking every last single piece of mail. Now imagine if Hotmail decided to start blocking e-mail from your customers how mad would you be.

This is one service I will never ever use again. Good luck getting removed from their block list it is nearly impossible unless you want to pay some company a $100,000 a year to make sure all of your e-mail is delivered, this is beyond criminal.

  1. Hotmail and Windows Live (dead?) mail also is blocking all of my email to people. I never bulk email people so I’m not sure how I got blocked. All of my messages from fastmail.fm accounts also bounce.

  2. I’m helping with the launch of a social networking site, and we’re having the exact same problems. I support Microsoft’s firm stance on spam, but wish they provided some means to prove legitimacy.
