[resolved] hotmail email address doesn't work (2 posts)

    I have installed the free version of WP Email Capture according to the tutorial and it works great when I did a test subscription request to my blog using an @me.com email address. However, when I try to subscribe to my blog using an @hotmail.com email address the subscription email never comes. I am still sent to the subscription confirmation page, but the email address remains unconfirmed because the email is never received. The test email works for both email addresses when I send the test email from the back end of wordpress during plug in set up. How can I unsure all email users can subscribe to my blog? Thank you!

    More than likely it's an issue with hotmail thinking email address associated with your blog sending out spam flags. Basically if the "from" address is @me.com, Hotmail sees that the email isn't originating from @me.com itself so marking it as spam. Try using an email address with @domain.com.
