snt0-omc4-s8.snt0.hotmail.com misdirecting Email

Last Modified: 2013-11-30
I have a problem with emails being sent from Hotmail to one user intermitantly not getting delivered to my domain.
I managed to get the routing info from one that shows that
(snt0-omc4-s8.snt0.hotmail.com [])
Sent its message to ubuntu.cmudaily.com instead of the domain as specified in the DNS MX recored.
I have check with the company that hosts our DNS and they say the DNS is working correctly with no reported errors. Infact all Emails from anywhere elses are working.

I have reported this to support at hotmail which now seems to have been a waist of time.

Has anyone one had this problem and if so did thay manage to get it resolved?
