Hi-
I have been suffering from e-mails being rejected and returned to the original sender so that I do not receive them.

I was able to get a copy of one that was rejected a few days ago.  Please find the rejection details below, as well as a paste from SORBS and WHOIS.

HOW do I resolve this problem?

With Regards-
Sam

actually doesn't look like its you specifically .  If I read this right.  the sender's IP address is being listed by SORBES as an exploited server (exploited for presumably for the use of sending spam).  considering the source is MS's hotmail, where anyone can get a free account; I'm not surprised..

So from this; it sounds like whatever spam filter you use is subscribing to this SORBES service.  And once it sees an IP that is on the list; it blocks it.  

If this spam filter has a whitelist; you may want to add this particular hotmail user to that (and anyone else you want to get email from that has been blacklisted by SORBES).

The otherway about it is having the sender go to the SORBES site and having their IP removed from the SORBES list.  This type of an action may be better suited for the users that are using a non public/free account.  The sites hosting free email services will most probably get blacklisted again in a very quick manner.

I agree, it looks like SORBS has blocked hotmail! That's too funny :)
