    Customer's not receiving Auto Responder emails to Hotmail email addresses.

    Asked by on January 07, 2013 at 08:56 PM

    Hello,

    My contact form is not sending the Auto Responder email to the customer if they are using a Hotmail email address.

    I tested this several times to confirm if this is true using my own Hotmail address and my customer's are correct. It is NOT being sent to a Hotmail email address. I even checked the Junk/Spam folders in my Hotmail and the Auto Responder email is not there either. I tested also on anon-hotmail address and I received the Auto Responder email.

    Why are my customer's not receiving a Auto Responder if they are using Hotmail?

    The Notification email from customer's I receive with no problems, it's just the Auto Responder being sent to a Hotmail address does not get received.

    Please help asap!

    Thank you!!

    Hi Billy,

    It seems like some of the hotmail emails are getting bounced. Would you mind sending here the hotmail email addresses so we can check and removed it to the bounce list?

    We'll await your reply. Thanks!

    Hello idarktech,

    All Hotmail email's are not getting the Auto Responder but they are getting the Notification emails fine.

    For example, in testing my personal email, toreachbilly@hotmail.com, I do not receive the Auto Responder, but our company's email diversifiedmobilemarine@hotmail.com will receive the Notification email just fine. Like I said it's all Hotmail email addresses submitted on our contact form from any hotmail email address will not receive the Auto Responder however our Notification to our company's Hotmail email address, diversifiedmobilemarine@hotmail.com, we receive fine.

    Please let me know as to the status of this issue asap.

    Again, as always, Thank You!

    Billy

    Hello Billy, I ran a test on your form and I was unable to replicate the same problem. Both the notification and autoresponder came through to my email account -

     

    Have you checked your Hotmail Junk Folder? From what I know Hotmail tends to be more strict than other email providers so they get marked alot of the time as Junk/Spam.

    Hello Deygus and idarktech,

    It is working now for some strange reason. I tested it with my Hotmail email and I got the Auto Responder. Curious if the issue with Hotmail was fixed?

    As always,

    Thank You guys!

    Hi,

    I have actually tested this before I leave and my hotmail email address ended to the bounce list as well. After removing it, this seems to fix everything and they seem to start working normally. Unfortunately, the bounce list doesn't give any reason why so I couldn't point out what exactly causes this issue but if this happens again, be sure to let us know. Thanks!
