hotmail rejects outgoing email
 
I have followed the Perfect Server Setup for Ubuntu 7.04/7.10 several months ago.
Postfix is relaying automatically generated email from Joomla (through PHP mail function) to almost all mail providers except Hotmail. The message is kept in queue and never sent.

Here's an example:

Finally, i have found some valuable info regarding the new anti-spam policies deployed by some global providers, like hotmail (http://www.compassdesigns.net/joomla...and-aol.html):

Quote:

We just spent quite a bit of time discovering why so many emails are bouncing. What we discovered is that it is not just AOL or any specific providers, but it appears to be a growing number of all email admins adopting a new anti-spam practice known as filtering by RDNS. It is a very easy concept to understand once you discover what is going on.
A quick version is this:
When you send an email to someone, their email server takes a bit of information from your email (from the header information) that states who you are. It is your email address. That server then takes the domain part of your email address it has taken from your email, and looks at the domain part (the part after the @). It does a look-up on that domain name and finds out what IP address is assigned to the domain according to the international naming registries. Those are the 'Domain Naming System' (DNS) registries. If the IP doesn't match what is in those registries, the receiving email server, where you sent your email to, suspects your email to possibly be spam and rejects it. That is when you get a message back stating your email is undeliverable.

This is a system that is growing in popularity with email administrators. They are simply tired of spending far too much time, unclogging their email servers and network routers of unwanted spam.

This is important to anyone who has a website hosted on a 'shared hosting' service, which the vast majority of websites are. It is important because when you are on a shared hosting system, there is usually one instance of a mail server that is providing email services to a number of those sites. That email server has only ONE IP address. That means that all those sites under each server all have the same IP address, and that's where the problem comes in. That one IP address is registered in the DNS system to only one domain, usually the domain of the hosting company or one they have set up for email use. Since many websites are using that one mail server, they can't all have that one IP, it's against the rules of the DNS system. In that system, each domain 'is suppose to' have a unique IP address. As you can see, if all the hosted domains using that one email server are sending emails identifying themselves as the IP assigned to the one email server, all those emails from all those domains EXCEPT the one the email server is registered to, run the risk of being rejected.

I hope that helps answer your curiousities regarding bouncing emails.
Thanks,
Nuno.

Do a search on this forum for Hotmail, and you will find even more info.

I am on it.

Thanks,

I don't know how the MTA works (I use a dual boot here Vista and Debian Lenny) since I have never used one, but I was having trouble with hotmail also. When I was on linux and tried to use the webpage based hotmail, I could view my mail, but not send anything correctly. I would hit new message, type it in and hit send. It would send the message, but the person getting it would get nothing but a header, I guess, because there would be no text in the message body. I searched on web and found somewhere where they had the setting for using a POP3 client to access it. So I installed Icedove email client and tried to set it up. Got it to read incoming mail, but couldn't send any outgoing. The instructions said outgoing used ssl and the use of password authorization, but apparently that was not correct as I changed it to TLS and it worked. Could that be the problem? Probably just an example of microsoft arrogance, to make sure nobody else on another operating system can use their program features.
