Hotmail Inconsistent mail flows RRS feed

  • Question

  • Not sure where to post this one ....

    I send email from my workplace to my Hotmail account it is delivered right away no issues.

    When my co-worker who is sitting beside me sends to his Hotmail account it never gets delivered not does he receive any NDR.  Out outgoing appliance shows delivered successfully.  The difference I see is that my message went through a different Hotmail server than his.  I see two different IP addresses. 

    I take the IP address of the server which my mail went through and I send a test message to my co-worker via telnet it gets delivered right away. 

    Looks like there are issues with some Microsoft Hotmail servers????  I am considering to contact the mothership
