I am trying to use the console in Fedora 17 to send an automated email to myself.
I run this:
echo "email content" | mail -s "blah" email@example.com
It works fine, google treats it as a spam email, but when you mark it not spam everything is cool. For Hotmail there are policies to prevent the email from being sent.
I do this:
echo "email content" | mail -s "blah" firstname.lastname@example.org
And the email returns as undeliverable, the email does not even appear in the spam folder and I get this as a response:
----- Transcript of session follows ----- ... while talking to mx3.hotmail.com.: >>> MAIL From:<email@example.com> SIZE=685 <<< 550 DY-001 (BAY0-MC3-F8) Unfortunately, messages from 184.108.40.206 weren't sent. Please contact your +Internet service provider. You can tell them that Hotmail does not relay dynamically-assigned IP ranges. +You can also refer your provider to http://mail.live.com/mail/troubleshooting.aspx#errors. 554 5.0.0 Service unavailable
So apparently hotmail doesn't like spammers so much, they they are blocking anything with a dynamically assigned IP range. Google does not do this. What is the easiest way to just get around this and send an email to hotmail and end up in their spam folder to be unblocked later by the user?
