Cant receive emails from Hotmail on Exchange 2010

Hey guys,

I am having a very confusing problem. I have configured an exchange server and have redirected emails to this server and all emails seem to be flowing well except for Hotmail emails. Can anyone help me troubleshoot this.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Do you have reverse DNS records setup in DNS? If not you will get mail rejected form Hotmail

I managed to resolve this issue as the Netgear firewall was blocking emails from coming in. Once I upgraded the firmware, all issues were resolved. It was a UTM25 firewall.
