  • I have the same problem - any emails I send to any Hotmail addresses are rejected with the same message as robertaruth. Can Microsoft tell us what they have done and how to remedy it/

  • You need to contact your ISP who will then need to contact Hotmail admins about the black-list.
    Although you can't do anything about this directly (short of using a different email provider), for future reference:
