  • E-mail to hotmail not working

    Hi all

    I have a friend who has his own company but the IT is done on a shoe string. Recently his Mdaemon mail server would not e-mail AOL or Hotmail. In the logs it shows as connecting to the mail server and all goes well. I can telnet to port 25 to a hotmail server and it all goes well. But the recipients hotmail account does not have the mail in. I can e-mail a yahoo! account not problem. And reply. I can e-mail the hotmail account from the yahoo! account no problem. but not from the server.

    I've checked to see if his ip address is blacklisted (it is dynamic anyway) and it isn't.

    Any ideas?

        So basically AOL wont accept any emails from a mail server on a dynamic IP, only via the ISP's own servers. Yet another black mark against them

        Tony, could you get your friend to set up MDaemon to use the ISPs server as a smart host for outgoing mail, i.e. forward everything to it for onward transmission. Most servers allow that, but I dont have an MDaemon handy to check where it is done.
