email from HOTMAIL and LIVE.COM not being delivered - DAY 4 - solution tested
UPDATE: It appears that this issue has been addressed and I would recommend testing. If it is working for you remember the default the mail box is set up as shown below. I have been advised that if you return it to the default (by unchecking the box) you will never see any message Comcast believes is SPAM. It may be best for you to leave the both boxes checked so that you can always peek into the SPAM if you don't see a message you were expecting. I will be leaving both boxes checked.
The place to do that is shown below
eMail messages addressed to any comcast.net user originating from hotmail.com or live.com get dropped by comcast servers. Messages sent with read and delivery receipts requested display the following message. Delivery to these recipients or groups is complete, but no delivery notification was sent by the destination server:
Searching the forums this has happenned numerous times at COMCAST.NET and typically blamed on SPAM filtering at COMCAST. It is not uncommon to not send delivery reciepts these days but the message does indicate that the mail was sent and received even though I can confirm that the message was not delivered to the end user. I have tested with 3 other comcast.net users all having the same result.
If you are listening COMCAST, contact me to help work thru this issue as in these days of stay at home work email delivery is vital.
- to comcast.net users - scroll down to see a work-around but be advised you will start receiving a lot of SPAM if you implement this temporary work-around, maybe having to send all that spam over there networks will get COMCAST to address the real problem.
