Actually no, the Slackbuilds.org MTA has no trouble delivering mail 
to Microsoft addresses.  There are several here on the users' list.

The address verification probes are done on the SBo web server, not 
on the mail server.

Actually no again.  Right now it seems that Microsoft is among the 
most responsive in the industry.  I would not hesitate to ask them 
for help, but unfortunately I have nothing to go on.

We would need to have logs of these delivery attempts along with 
exact rejection messages received.  What gets to the submitter's 
browser is inadequate for troubleshooting.
