Outlook.com / Hotmail.com Blocking Email

The misleading wording from Sendgrid made me think it was my IP that was the problem. It is theirs as I now know, and they tell me that can happen if you are on the free package. Can't really argue as its free, but it's not a great way to trial something.

I thought the free trial was going to give me an idea of how good they are before going for the paid account, where (they say) you get a dedicated own IP so it won't get blacklisted due to someone else.

Now I have an issue with Amazon.

Been using fine for a few weeks, now suddenly btinternet is blacklisting. It affects only forum notifications though, a test email sent via same SES account on my computer with mac mail is fine.

This is the fail message:

Diagnostic-Code: smtp; 554 Message rejected for policy reasons (3.2.1.1)

Just testing mailgun on cafesaxophone to see if I get better luck in regard to btinternet and AOL bounces. Documentation seems to be written for devs rather than dummies (which is to be expected) but seems so far seems to be OK.
