    When I create new emails from my hosted server. Then they wont reach hotmail. They do reach other email accounts.
    I checked my spam box, also not in there.

    But when I receive an email from an hotmail account and reply to that one. It does reach hotmail. Also when I forward an hotmail email to another hotmail email (from my own mail server mail) it does reach hotmail.
    My spf settings and dns settings are all ok. I'm really clue less what to do to fix this issue.

    My domain is
    And my email is [email protected]

    I hope someone could help me out here.
    Ow its not my own server. Its from an hosting company. So I only have access to cpanel.

    Ask hotmail to add your "new" domain ( to the SenderID program

    I already did that. With no result.

    Did a person from Microsoft reply to you?
    Also.. How long did you wait? When they add your domain to the SenderID, it will take some days (as the person who replied to your email will have told you)

    It could be a DNS (+SPF +Reverse DNS), but as you are saying that this is all okay, this is not the problem.

    Or.. Is your mailserver blacklisted?

    I did submitted an long time ago. No reply received.

    I also checked blacklists etc. I'm not on there. Also not the ip im sending from.

    You can check my dns and spf and reverse dns with the online dns tools. I think.

    Then you will see eveything is just fine. I also did an microsoft spf check. And they say its just fine. ;)

    Whenever I submit a new domain (also .nl's) I get a reply from some rep at It's not some auto generated email, but from a real person.
    It reads something like this:
    So.. If you are sure all is okay with your DNS, than try submitting your domain(s) again! When done it will work!
    Maybe try to use an email address that does work (not from the trouble domain)

    I did received that email and they said everything is ok and it could take 2 business days. I received that email on the 24th of October. Should it should work by now. But it doesnt.

    Another thing.

    I'm trying to check the headers of gmail to see if I pass or fail the spf test. How can I check these headers??

    Ok I found it:

    Received-SPF: pass ( domain of [email protected] designates as permitted sender) client-ip=;
    Authentication-Results:; spf=pass ( domain of [email protected] designates as permitted sender) [email protected]

    As you can see I passed the check.
