Yet another recent “Fuck you” from Microsoft: it seems that Hotmail (or Live or whatever it’s called these days) won’t accept e-mails from my dedicated server despite its crystal clear Anti-Spam-Reputation:

Please contact your Internet service provider since part of their network is on our block list. You can also refer your provider to http://mail.live.com/mail/troubleshooting.aspx#errors. (in reply to MAIL FROM command))
Well, that’s unfortunate but nothing I can do about at the moment since they don’t even have an IP removal submission form or any other sane way of contacting someone who cares, so… If you’re a Hotmail user and haven’t had a reply from me: that’s why I recommend the forums as an alternative way to contact me. Cheers!
