Default Sending to Hotmail accounts?

Please Login to Remove!

It came to my attention today that people using hotmail accounts were not receiving any emails from my blackberry. I just tested it out on 3 accounts and none of them made it thru.

Does anyone know a reason for this?

Cheers

Default in an effort

because in an effort to reduce spam and keep bogus emails from being received, Hotmail has increased security and screening. Everytime I sent someone an email and then logged into my account later that day, it would ask me to verify a string of numbers that were shaded, or disoriented, ect. This is the primary reason I switched to gmail. I also encouraged my friends to switch as well. Plain and simple, Hotmail is doing so much to keep bad things out, it's keeping the good out as well.

after further looking into, they are just being tagged as spam and sent to hotmails junk folder.

ive been sending who knows how many emails to hotmail accounts in the past few weeks that noone has gotten.

anyone have a way to get around this? not likely eh?

Default only thing

Only thing that they can do is to add you to their safe lists. Other than that, no other solutions

I have always heard that Hotmail doesn't work good with BWC anyway.

Default gmail

did it speed up? If so, how did you accomplish it, and what exactly is push email. I havent ever had a need for it, it might be useful.
