Have your hotmail users check their bulk mail folder. If the message is
not there, they will have to 'whitelist' the address of your list. Your
other choice is to contact hotmail yourself and ask them to allow your
list messages into their system, or find a setting within exim that will
reduce the number of recipients per message in the hotmail domain to a
number less than 10 or 15, whatever hotmail's limit is.
