Please don't register for this forum with a hotmail email address.

If you are using a hotmail address, any registration confirmations, topic update or private message notifications, emails sent via the board or administration emails send by moderators will not reach you. Even more irritatingly, they will be bounced back to the administrator email address, which is me.

This is because Microsoft have recently introduced some new spam filtering which is wrongly identifying emails generated by this forum as spam and bouncing them.

This is a royal pain in the backside for me as I'm now starting to get hit by a significant number of bounces and there seems to be nothing I can do to fix it. It isn't our problem - it's hotmail's spam filter that is broken.

Hotmail users might like to raise the issue with Microsoft and see if they would like to stop wrongly identifying forum messages as spam. You might get an automated response in a couple of months time.

The bounce message says;

Connected to but sender was rejected.
Remote host said: 550 Your e-mail was rejected for policy reasons on this gateway. Reasons for rejection may be related to content such as obscene language, graphics, or spam-like characteristics (or) other reputation problems. For sender troubleshooting information, please go to http://postmaster.msn.com. Please note: if you are an end-user please contact your E-mail/Internet Service Provider for assistance.
