Use your ISP to send to these domains ... check if you are blacklisted on 1 of the open relay databases available...

On the other hand, this is something that happens quite frequently (on my servers too) - propably because these systems are constantly overloaded.  I've seen occasions where it takes a few days to send something to a hotmail server....
