    Is anyone having the problem of email forwarders set up to go to hotmail not being received at hotmail?

    I tested on 3 different servers and none of them will forward to hotmail.

    I checked and we're not in the spam databases.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks.

    This always happens. Hotmail has to be configured to recognize the email address being forwarded from cPanel or it will bounce it. Dunno why. This has been going on for years.

    Hotmail > Options > Junk E-Mail Protection > Safe List

    It'll work then.

    welo, thanks so much for pointing me in the right direction. I couldn't get it to work by just putting an email address in the Safe List, but I did figure out a way that seems to be working. Here's what I did:

    1.In your hotmail account, click on the Options link which is on the far right by the help link.

    2.Click on Custom Filters

    3.Click on New Filter

    4.Click on Advanced Filter

    5.Under the Filter Criteria, set the first box to To or cc lines, the second box to contains, and in the third text box, type in your domain name

    If anybody is making it work a different way, please let me know.
