    I think I'm having the same problem as a lot of these people had, with Hotmail appearing to accept mail from my domain, but then not delivering it to the recipient. However, I'm an individual running my own mail server, not a company, so this hasn't been thoroughly tested on the scale of a mailing list.

    So, first things first: Is someone willing to let me try sending an email to their Hotmail address, to confirm that my mail doesn't get there? (If you also give me a non-Microsoft-controlled address, I can CC the test email to that account, so you can see that I can successfully send email to people outside Microsoft's world, with valid SPF and DKIM and everything.)

    Hi Tim,

    Did you try creating your own outlook.com address for testing? Did any of the recipients reporting the missing email check their Junk folder and "Other email" tab?

    No; I was hoping to avoid entering into a 10,000-word contract with Microsoft simply in order to persuade them to deliver my domain's mail to their customers, or even just to test whether they're doing so or not. I thought it would be better to get help from someone who already has an address at a Microsoft-controlled domain.

    One of my recipients said he checked all his folders; all three (unrelated) messages I've sent to him from my domain have gone missing, but he gets email I send from my old Gmail address. (And no, I haven't mis-typed his email address.)
