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 [126.96.36.199]) 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 [188.8.131.52]) 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 - Received : from unknown (HELO qmail.hitmedia.com) (184.108.40.206) by 220.127.116.11 with SMTP; 13 Aug 2001 18:25:50 - 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?

Return-Path : [EMAIL PROTECTED] From : [EMAIL PROTECTED] This _may_ be the reason. That was it! It was the headers. They need to have an X-Sender, X-Mailer, RFC 822 formatted date, and Return-Path, or Hotmail puts it in the Junk Mail folder automatically. Thanks Henning everyone who helped.
