My emails to hotmail will allways endup in the 'Bulk' folder of a hotmail address.

Did you have a look there?

Also.. As far as I know you will need to ask the webmaster of Hotmail to 'white list' your domain.

Good luck..

Can you please suggest me....How can I be sure that hotmail has black listed my domain???

your domain is not black listed.. It is not white listed!
If you register a new domain today it will still not work as it's not on the 'white list'!

If your SPF record is correct, the email should still showup in the 'Bulk' mail.

Are you sure your SPF record is okay?
A way of seeing this is by looking at the headers of a Gmail account!
It should say something like this:
Quote:

Received-SPF: pass (gmail.com: domain of support@yourdomain.ext designates the_ip_of_server as permitted sender)
where support@yourdomain.ext is the email address of the sender and the_ip_of_server the IP of the server running the mailserver.

If the SPF record is wrong the message is like this:
Quote:

Received-SPF: neutral (gmail.com: the_ip_of_server is neither permitted nor denied by best guess record for domain of support@yourdomain.ext )
note the neither permitted nor denied

When it's like this I also can not send to Hotmail!

That may have been your problem but not mine. My ip address is on a few of the spam lists because it is in the comcast residential ip range. I suppose hotmail subscribes to one of them. Gmail is fine though. Really do not like hotmaiol anyway but thought it might be nice to use on my pocket pc.

Just a note for those that are using comcast and are playing with isp-config at home.

By the way my date format seems to have changed by itsself somehow between the 7th of this month and the 14th (july) now dd/mm/yy rather than mm/dd/yy. I have not re-booted nor touched the server during this time. A re-boot did not do any good. Any ideas?

Which time format? Where? :confused:

In UebiMaiu Web Mail

Hans 17th July 2006 07:44

name field within the options screen of Uebimau
 
I have noticed that if there is a dot in the name field within the options screen of Uebimau, email will be not deliverd to the inbox of hotmail.

For example if you use this notation in the namefield: Peter.Johnson it will not be deliverd. If you use Peter Johnson, it will.

Maybe this helps you too...

Thanks Hans but no dots in the email address. djmillernet@hotmail.com.
