Actionmailer and Hotmail

Has anyone had any issues with sending mail using ActionMailer to
hotmail addresses?

The email doesn’t come up at all, not even in spam/junk mail.

Also has anyone has issues with mail from ActionMailer being marked as
spam in gmail?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Carl.

Nothing to do with ActionMailer or Rails. The SMTP setup, MX, etc. are
probably screwed.

Carl,

In regards to your Gmail question I recently ran into a problem when
using ActionMailer where all messages sent were marked as spam. It
turned out that I wasn’t properly formatting the sender address. Once I
changed this everything cleared the Gmail spam filter and made it to my
Inbox. Here are more details if you’re interested:

I hope this helps.

Hi Dennis,

I worked it out. You need to do 'from name ’ and its
perfect.

I’ll post a comment on your blog as well.

P.S. the spam issues are fixed with this change as well.

Cheers,
Carl.

Hi Dennis,

Thanks for your help. This is great. It comes through now in gmail
which is awesome.

It comes through as (Unknown sender). Have you had that?

Thanks again for your help,
Carl.

I haven’t had any issues with GMail. I haven’t tested the hotmail part,
BUT it should be fine as long as you set a FROM address for your email.
In my Gmail, ActionMailer emails come up normally, and the From address
is exactly as it was set in the app.

This thread addressed the gmail issue, but I’m curios if the Hotmail
issue was resolved. I’m having the same problem with sending emails to
Hotmail; the emails aren’t received at all…nothing in Spam either.
Thanks for your help
