Hey, I just found about new Microsoft efforts changes which might cause many emails to not be delivered to their email subscribers.
I'd like to hear from them, but have no clue who to contact.
The following is from the South by Southwest conference site
Most importantly, I don't think they ever clearly and conspicuously tell their users that according to them:
Microsoft does not have an obligation to deliver any particular e-mail message.
Here's more, but check out the whole entry for yourself at the link above.
Apparently, Microsoft had started dropping email into the bit bucket without letting anyone know. The hard part was proving this *and* finding a way to communicate our argument to Microsoft. How in the world do you get a hold of someone at Hotmail? There's no email addresses or phone numbers! We gathered our data and through personal connections, we were able to find a human being and work our way through the system. We finally found a Hotmail person who was willing to listen to us. At first she denied that Microsoft would dump email without explanation. After going through a few rounds of tests with her, she changed her story. She said:
Thank you for contacting MSN Hotmail. With the help of the detailed troubleshooting information you have provided, we have determined that the message in question, the Less Network Confirmation, but not your other test emails, has been blocked by an MSN Hotmail filter deployed to stop unsolicited e-mail. Like many other e-mail service providers, MSN Hotmail uses filtering methods to stop unsolicited e-mail. Consumers have told us that stopping unsolicited e-mail is a top priority and because our #1 goal is pleasing our customers, we are employing technology that helps protect them from unsolicited e-mail
Note that they're doing this without the informed consent or notice to their users.
If this is wrong, I'll correct it right away
