Why Does hotmail still reject my emails?

So I've been working a long time on fixing the Hotmail issue, but nothing seems to work:

  • Created my SPF records with the microsoft tool
  • Enabled reverse DNS (and checked)
  • Checked MX records
  • Checked for blacklists
  • Added DKIM
  • Did every test on MxToolbox

I have a VPS set up with my main domain as nameserver. All my clients domains have my NS-records and they can edit the DNS in DirectAdmin.

This is my last test:

Authentication-Results:; sender-id=pass (sender IP is xx.xx.xx.74); dkim=none; x-hmca=pass
X-DKIM-Result: None
X-Message-Status: n:0:n

It's Hotmail. There's nothing you can do about them except to ask recipients to add you to their safe list. – Michael Hampton Aug 1 '12 at 15:01
Are you sure? Because there are so many how-to's on fixing the spam mark. – Webscrabbler Aug 1 '12 at 15:40

Not sure if this matters or not but your test message doesn't actually contain any text. It's possible its marking it as SPAM because it does not appear to be a valid e-mail message. Try actually adding a body to the message and see if that works.

I removed the text and I checked with multiple contents. – Webscrabbler Aug 1 '12 at 16:00
Removed what text? I meant you should add a message to the body of the email. Make sure you have a subject and a body. – Brent Pabst Aug 1 '12 at 17:21
Ugh, I don't know what I just wrote... I tried out multiple kinds of contents. Normal text like: "About out meeting", "Hello, it was blabla..". – Webscrabbler Aug 1 '12 at 19:49

Are you sure you're not on any DNSBL? It could be the ISP / provider has others already on the list and you're guilty by association.

I check the IP of my server on multiple lists. Getting a green light from about 150 Blacklist servers. Maybe you have a list I didn't check with? – Webscrabbler Aug 1 '12 at 15:42 was all I had, sounds like you've used it. Check for other IPs on that range... might return some bad results :( – D Whyte Aug 1 '12 at 15:45
