    I am getting all of the activation emails marked as spam by hotmail, so users arent getting the email. How can I fix this?

    Basically, you can't...this is a hotmail issue and impacts a lot of other web applications as well.

    You could put a notice on your site about this, suggesting that hotmail users check their spam folder or ban hotmail account sign-ups completely.

    Yeah, thats what I was able to figure out from using the search :(

    Its a shame really, because I get lots of signups from real users who have hotmail.

    Maybe you did not search enough, this helped me quite easily, hotmail is just protecting themselves from spamservers:

    Ah, I didnt read all of the posts from that thread for some reason, but thanks for that url! (dnsstuff)

    That showed me like 5 warnings and 2 fails. Most coming from the mail part. I'll try to fix now :D

    Ok, I did everything and got the mail sorted out but hotmail still wont work. Hotmail sucks.
