Hi,

For some reason Windows Live Hotmail keeps Blocking my newsletter from certain legit sites. It says it is a highly risky email and potentially dangerous etc, but it doesn't give me the option to mark it as safe. I have even added the email address' in my address book and safe/safe senders list, but still I get this problem. Is there a solution to this apart from enter a new email address for the newsletter to be sent to?

I know the newsletter emails are OK to open but the problem is normally you get the option to "mark as safe" but with this email I don't, so every time I receive the weekly email I have to keep clicking the "show contents" option rather than being able to view the email as normal.

I would like to be able to make it so this email is received and displayed as the other emails I receive.

Does anyone have any ideas to how I can solve this?


Thanks.

The advice you're likely to get here is Hotmail sucks, use something else. That's not the answer you want but is probably the best solution.

Surly there is a way to allow these emails that are being blocked.

Apparently not. Hotmail's motivation for blocking what they perceive as spam is to charge the sender to allow it. In other words, it's a holdup. Sound ridiculous? Remember we're talking about Microsoft AKA the 800 pound gorilla. Do a Google search to learn more about this. It's not an isolated problem. Again, the solution is to ditch Hotmail and use something else.
