Sorry - I forwarded one I sent to my Hushmail account, because Hotmail doesn't let you see the full and complete headers. So - YES - email sent to my hotmail account had the exact address in the "To:" header. It wasn't CC:'d or anything - it was a unique email sent. So . . . maybe Hotmail is doing some kinda reverse lookup? (though my Qmail-SMTP box has its own reversed domain & IP... fully legit.) I thought maybe it was something else in the headers - because when I use that Qmail SMTP server with Eudora things go through fine. Again - I'll put the headers below if anyone might have any insight? > Does anyone know why Hotmail would put any of my Qmail-sent emails into the > "Junk Mail" folder automatically? > > How do they determine what's junk mail? Or - rather - how do I prove to > them this is not junk mail? To my knowledge, their only criteria is whether the recipient address appears in the To: or cc: headers. If it doesn't (mailing list mail, bcc'd mail), it's junk mail. > To : [EMAIL PROTECTED] > From : [EMAIL PROTECTED] The hotmail address doesn't appear in the To: header -- ergo, it's junk mail. Here are my Qmail headers (when sent to hushmail - which can show you full headers.) ------------------- Return-Path : <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> X-Sieve : cmu-sieve 2.0 Return-Path : <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Received : from smtp1.hushmail.com (smtp1.hushmail.com [220.127.116.11]) by imap1.hushmail.com (Postfix) with ESMTP id 2BB615F02C7 for <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>; Mon, 13 Aug 2001 11:27:41 -0700 (PDT) Received : from mail.hitmedia.com (unknown [18.104.22.168]) by smtp1.hushmail.com (Postfix) with SMTP id 8D9881378B for <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>; Mon, 13 Aug 2001 11:24:36 -0700 (PDT) Received : (qmail 17552 invoked from network); 13 Aug 2001 18:25:50 -0000 Received : from unknown (HELO qmail.hitmedia.com) (22.214.171.124) by 126.96.36.199 with SMTP; 13 Aug 2001 18:25:50 -0000 To : [EMAIL PROTECTED] From : [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject : Testing this little mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] Message-Id : <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Date : Mon, 13 Aug 2001 11:24:36 -0700 (PDT) [EMAIL PROTECTED] - Hey - how are you?
