MSN and Hotmail users: We cannot guarantee that you will be able to receive messages from .

After extensively debugging the connection between and MSN, and after looking for information anywhere we could find it, we have determined that this problem is most likely caused by a combination of two things:

1. MSN's anti-SPAM filtering may be one of the problems. It rejects first time messages with hyperlinks in them that it considers to be a threat. Such as our registration confirmation email.
2. MSN determines a site to be a spam threat when it trips the SPAM throttling threshold. This basically means that if too many messages are sent from in a certain time period (which remains undetermined) MSN assumes that is spamming them and rejects our messages.

Unfortunately, MSN has been less than forthcoming about the issue, so we have not yet been able to narrow down the exact source. Please note that we are not the only ones experiencing this problem: many mail server administrators are complaining about it.

We will continue to investigate the issue until we know what causes it, and we will continue to look for ways to reduce the effect of this problem on our users until we come up with a more permanent resolution.

You may want to consider using a different email service for until a solution is found. We recommend GMAIL.
