Consider me in a rage. Yes, I am ready to throw a fit. The next person contacting me via an email account by:
can expect to be shot. All those are domains by bloody, fucking Microsoft. And they just stole hours of my life, again.
Microsoft has no clue what they are doing. Scared of competing Gmail (by Google) they turn email into FUBAR. How so?
Microsoft is forwarding emails through at least two of those domains, mostly three. Most of their domains are abused by spammers constantly. Thus, everybody handling email services hates Microsoft already. Them and their victims, aka customers. And as if that alone would not be bad enough, Microsoft uses outdated spam lists. What does that mean? Let me explain.
There are dozens of servers, which maintain blacklists of spammers. Without going into detail, they work to identify servers, through which a lot of spam is sent. Those servers and corresponding IP addresses are ‘blacklisted’. Servers then use those blacklists to block emails from the servers and IP addresses listed there. All of that to prevent you from receiving spam. So far so good.
Two of the dozens of blacklists are outdated. They went out of business. And they informed their customers accordingly, asking them to stop using the lists. As the lists are outdated, they produce what is called ‘false positives’. Meaning, email is labeled spam and blocked subsequently, although it is perfectly legitimate.
What does Microsoft do with all its own spamming webmail domains? They continue to use the outdated lists. And are blocking legitimate emails. Can you inform Microsoft about their FUBAR? It is a nightmare. Do they react, after you went through the hustle? Not at all. So, I just spent hours, trying to get a client off those outdated spam lists, just because Microsoft is incompetent.
Why am I writing all this?
