Just a quick heads-up. If you've registered a Outlook/Hotmail/Live address with Xenforo.com, you'll be unable to post or download anything there till they get their IP whitelisted, since you'll be automatically blocked by their system from doing so.

Oh, never mind, I guess. Fortunately they got the problem resolved very quickly. ;)

And.... it might actually still be a problem for some of you. I thought the problem had been resolved because I have access to everything again, but only saw a message from support after the fact that one of them had manually restored my privileges.

Sending emails to the great black hole of Microsoft is difficult. Once the asn is on their block list it's NEVER coming off.

Okay, I have been "officially" informed that the block has been removed....

They're usually pretty quick about removing blocks. Just about every time I've had to switch hosts I've also had to have the IP whitelisted, because of whatever the person who had it before was up to.

You can do it. You need to signup for the hotmail feedback loop for the IP ranges (which needs rDNS configured) this allows you to hive off an IP (or IP block) rep for yourself.

Then you need action any email spam block notices ASAP, and ensure your IP rep stays good.

After that, the de-listing form bounces around every so often; but it works. It just wants a real name contact, business-like email address and such.

I just logged in and to my disbelief all ips are normal.

I used to just assign more ips to my mail server until I got one that wasn't listed.
