Subject: [exchangelist] SMTP error with Hotmail-addresses

Hi folks,

I've got a little problem with emails send to MS Hotmail addresses. The 
error message says something like "SMTP communication error" and "#5.5.0 
smtp;500 Syntax error, command unrecognized".

This error only appears with Hotmail.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
