Hey im trying to Email someone from my AOL account and they have a hotmail account. I attached the kickback message I got. Has this happen to anyone else? Solution?

>>> MAIL From:<XXXXXX@aol.com> SIZE=5310
<<< 421 RP-001 The mail server IP connecting to Windows Live Hotmail server has exceeded the rate limit allowed. Reason for rate limitation is related to IP/domain reputation problems.

It sounds like Hotmail has marked AOL's mail server as a SPAM server...

I have not been able to find much information on a solution to this topic.  Email is becoming such a pain because of spam.  

My only suggestions:
Get your receiver to "whitelist" your email address.
Contact Hotmail...
Contact AOL...

I dont think you are going to mediate the issues between hotmail and AOL, they are above everyones paygrade.

What you can do is try at a lessbusy hour.

This message doesnt say the link is blacklisted, just that too many emails per minitew hit the server and yours got rejected

a susequent send can be expected to go through with this error. PROVIDED AOL doesnt have some yahoo pumping SPAM out, undetected.

unlikely, its probably aready sorted itself out .... try again
