I am on vps and trying send mail. all is ok except hotmail

I search some and it seems, i am jumping on providers local ips:

"Received: by with SMTP id d11cs133207yhg; Tue, 19 Jul 2011 04:48:51 >-0700 (PDT)

Received: by with SMTP id x8mr8066589pbg.146.1311076131217; Tue, 19 Jul 2011 >04:48:51 -0700 (PDT)"

and http://www.openspf.org/Why says:

"An SPF-enabled mail server rejected a message that claimed an envelope sender address of yourhost.net.

An SPF-enabled mail server received a message from XXX.sub-XXX-XX-XX.myvzw.com (XXX.XXX.XX.XXX) that claimed an envelope sender address of mydomain.com.

However, the domain mydomain.com has declared using SPF that it does not send mail through XXX.sub-XXX-XXX-XX.myvzw.com (XXX.XXX.XX.XXX). That is why the message was rejected."

finally my spf TXT record is:

v=spf1 mx -all

What should I do next? Thanks

  • Would you tell me wich mail address did you write to in order to get support? We have been facing this problem since a few weeks and we can't find any solution or any "human" on hotmail side. Thanks!. – Matt Mar 12 '12 at 9:31
  • Sorry that mail was in my old mail box – asdf_enel_hak Mar 16 '12 at 13:27

I emailed hotmail guys about the issue and have quick reply "we are aware the issue, several emails we received from other guys". then i wait several days and decided to google app mail. voila issue solved
