    Unhappy email using sendmail is queued in hotmail


    hi,


    i am just filling so mad, i am facing this problem for a week now i just tried evrey thing i can, even contacting Microsoft.

    the problem is that when i send emails from my site using web mail or php mail() function the message is not received to hot mail.

    But when i send using outlook from the same email address the mail is delivered to hotmail inbox .

    i think there is a problem with sendmail configuration or what?

    ok...double check by sending mails to other domains like yahoo etc
    if everything works ..then it's not your problem and i don't think u can do anything except contact hotmail again...(and get the reason for not processing mails)

    1)may be hotmail n't recognizing your domain for some reason..and keeps the mail in its queue...or 2)there may be network problem so there is delay in sending mails to you

    I think option 2 is rare case.

    If other domains like gmail and yahoo are working ...you can stick to them instead of fight with hotmail.

    no the problem is in hotmail spam configuration, as I think. i just make this test as i told you, I tried to use my mail to through outlook and it woks fine.

    see what happened, I change the outlook mail format to text not html and mail faild . this means that hotmail some times receives eamils that have a special mail header format.

    the question is, what is the this format?

    i will try to find it and put the solution here
