For reasons unknown, hotmail has marked us as spammers. We are trying to get off their list, but it is proving difficult, if not impossible.

If you are already a member and are using hotmail, you will not get any emails from the board for notifications, or password resets.
If you try and register with a hotmail account, you will not get the registration confirmation email nor any other emails from the board.

These emails are being sent out by us, and then rejected by hotmail.

Sorry for the inconvenience. Until this can get resolved, I would recommend using a different email provider.

I'd suggest setting up SPF records with your DNS provider. I checked my last email from this forum, and it was scored as "SPF neutral":
Code:
spf=neutral (google.com: 173.193.185.130 is neither permitted nor denied by best guess record for domain of siteadmin@luvtruck.com)

Having an SPF record would be one step in getting through Hotmail's anti-spam filters.

Good to know. I was unable to use my hotmail account for registering. Google account worked fine.

Joe, our DNS provider is not capable of providing that.
We would have to switch DNS providers.
No one else cares except Hotmail.

Yes, that’s how it’s done. I’ll check my next email notification and see if Gmail’s spam scoring changed.
