If you make majordomo a trusted user by adding the line "Tmajordomo" to
your sendmail.cf, the messages will not get caught by the hotmail SPAM
filter. It seems to be catching the "sender set by" line in the header.

I've followed the discussion here on the behaviour of hotmail WRT
mailing lists, and especially majordomo. I use majordomo to administer a
small number of relatively small lists, yet we still have been getting
problems with hotmail users reporting messages not arriving.
Today, someone sent the following, which suggests that hotmail is
treating the list's messages as junk mail. That's nice, isn't it?

If you are a Hotmail user and get your AWL list messages sent there, you
need to explain to Hotmail that you belong to the list and want its
delivered to your Inbox, otherwise it will put them in your Junk Mail
To do this, you find a list message that has gone to Junk Mail, open it,
click the button that is marked "this is not Junk Mail" and it will give
the option to say "this message is from a mailing list that I belong to".
Once you have told it this, it is absolutely fine and will put the messages
properly in your Inbox.
