I don't want to blame SBo's mta, it's just a guess with greylisting, i 
don't have your maillog.
I meant that greylisting may be a problem for submitting, not for this 
list where the mta has several tries until sending succseeds.

Ok, then the web server does something with hotmail's mx servers, are 
there logs?

Daniel and Jorge aren't able to submit via hotmail, and your statement 
is that the problem is not an SBo's side.

@Jorge: The git log says you submitted obnc-libstd on 2017-10-31 with 
your hotmail-address. I don't know much of git and what's possible, was 
that mailaddress the one you used to submit or not?
