Hi, folks. Hotmail did not deliver the CLG Newsletter sent earlier today. I am not sure (yet) if this problem extends to MSN, Live, and Outlook. Thank you, Lori Price

Hi Lori,

It doesn't look to be something on our end, from what you are referencing. You are saying the message is delivered to other email providers, just not hotmail specifically, right?

I am looping Ross in to see if there's anything we can look at.

Hi, Dana. Right, the problem is not on our end - Hotmail blocks our IP. MSN, Live, and Outlook typically also block. Ross previously took action to circumvent the block (Ticket #8190). I was hoping a similar remedy could be implemented. :) Thank you, Lori

Hi Lori,

I've added another ip address to, our hotmail relay and made the following change to /etc/postfix-b/

# smtp      unix  -       -       -       -       -       smtp -o smtp_bind_address=
smtp      unix  -       -       -       -       -       smtp -o smtp_bind_address=

This seems to have provided a temporary solution, but I don't know how long it will last before hotmail starts blocking us again. We'll have to wait and see. However, I think I got the original address swapped before hotmail permanently blacklisted it, so hopefully we can continue swapping these addresses.

Hi, Ross and Dana. Thank you so much for fixing the problem - even if it returns. :) Happy New Year, Lori
