Send from thunderbird to hotmail

schsst

New Email
Hi.

If I send an email to an hotmail account using thunderbird, hotmail reports it as spam.

If I send the same email (from the same account), from webmail, hotmail receives it as non-spam.

Why???

Thunderbird and Hotmail have different spam filter setups.

Thunderbird filters locally after download. If you keep marking it as "Not Junk" Thunderbird will learn that it's a legitimate message.

What domain are you sending from?

Does it have an SPF record that says email from the domain should not be coming from your ISP's smtp relays?

Do your ISP's smtp relays have a poor reputation?

mail.com publishes an SPF record saying mail should only come from their mail servers:

mail.com. 86400 IN TXT "v=spf1 ip4:213.165.64.0/23 ip4:74.208.5.64/26 ip4:74.208.122.0/26 ip4:212.227.126.128/25 ip4:212.227.15.0/25 ip4:212.227.17.0/27 ip4:74.208.4.192/26 -all"

Technically, by "their mail servers", I mean the blocks of IP addresses above.
