Hotmail issues

A number of people, both at ESPs and on the mailops mailing list, are reporting problems at Hotmail. The most common reports are senders getting

Site ( said in
response to MAIL FROM (452 Out of memory)

during the SMTP session.

There isn’t much senders can do about this. Hotmail is going to have to fix their resource issue. This may be limited to certain mail clusters, so watching the IP addresses reporting this error and avoiding them may help.

  • Vague reports of Yahoo problems

    A number of people, on different forums, have been asking if anyone is seeing a higher bounce rate than usual with Yahoo. Not sure exactly what's going on here. As I understand it, folks are talking with Yahoo about it. If I hear anything more, I'll share. For now, though, if you're seeing a small increase in Yahoo bounces (or other weirdnesses) others are seeing something odd, too.No Comments
