Emails to hotmail address are not received

Hi,

When a user uses a hotmail address as signup information, emails from vanilla are not received by Hotmail. Not even in the junk-box. I could not even sign up to this forum, since I would not receive an email from http://vanillaforums.org/ to Hotmail. Apparantly there is something really wrong.

    First things first... welcome to the community!

    Secondly, double check the email address was entered correctly.

    Thirdly, try using an SMTP server instead of the built-in mailer.

    @hgtonight thanks mate! I have tried a smtp server without security. Account verifications to a hotmail address were not received.

    If I change the user from 'confirm email' role to 'member' role and reset the password, the password is received properly. I do not know if this is a sudden occurrence so I have to test this properly.

    Will update.
