    Re: Tin-foil hats at standby

    To the OP - nothing new from Hotmail. Years ago, before Microsoft bought it, it was garbage. Had someone physically sitting next to me email me a file. Got it 4 years later. I have no idea why. (this was in the days of floppy's, so I just had them transfer it that way...after they found one they could use)
    This is a signature. It is original.

    Hotmail sucks and it always has. I like exchange based email and gmail better.

    Well, not really thinking me specifically, or UF. There's just no obvious reason for it
    But I was thinking they maybe drop priority of messages from domains known to present linux in a good light.

    The Community Chat area is for lighthearted and enjoyable discussions, like you might find around a water cooler at work.

    So hotmail-bashing is "lighthearted and enjoyable"?

    This.

    Don't get me started about Gmail's IMAP. It's why I don't use Gmail anymore.

    Whoa, don't want people to start being rubbed up the wrong way.

    This was just meant to be some light-hearted (ironic) linux zealotry, with a kernel of truth

    I don't know the real reason those e-mails were dropped/delayed, and other than that, I can't complain about hotmail

    They use a SPF-like but not entirely SPF-compatible (yeah, what else is new ...) mechanism, and if your mail server is not up to their "standards", you'll have trouble delivering mail to their servers - all part of Microsoft's plan to eradicate spam within 5 years.

    Your ISP's MX's, otoh, are probably white-listed.

    don't worry, most of them just want to be rubbed up the wrong way.
