I work in a corporate, Windows environment and it has been brought to my attention that we cannot send emails from our Exchange server (clients running Outlook 2003 and 2007) to any hotmail account.  I have tested this with my personal hotmail account and found that test messages sent from my corporate account do not get through to my hotmail account.  I have set my hotmail account to low spam filtering and added my domain name to the safe-senders list.  In message-tracking I see that the email gets to a hotmail server, but I do not have any tracking after that.  (the mail server looks something like:  I have searched the internet and I have a feeling that I just need to make an allowance somewhere on the Exchange server, but I cannot find anything that has helped me solve this.

Any help is much appreciated!!!
