    Are you able to send an email to hotmail account from Softlayer?

    Hi,

    For those who are having servers with Softlayer, Are you able to send email to hotmail account (inbox, bulk, trash folder)?

    I do not receive any reject/bounce notification from hotmail and exim log file displays

    Queued mail for delivery
    LOG: MAIN
    Completed

    I have RDNS and SPF record setup on these servers.

    Thanks

    I don't have a hotmail but have you tried Gmail and Yahoo too? Usually for me, Gmail is always fast in receiving email but Yahoo can take almost 2 hours. I've tried that before by sending email from my localhost. I'm guessing Yahoo is kind of trying to filter out spams but if it compromise speed, then thumbs down for them.

    When I use Gmain it loads very fast but as for Yahoo it can last for a long while.

    I had the exact same problem. You need to follow the steps here: http://postmaster.msn.com/Troubleshooting.aspx

    When you email them they respond very quickly and will then get everything sorted for you.
