sendmail hangs sending to hotmail... no suprise there then


I'ev set up a primitive mailign list system (procmail -> formail -> ) and it works my end, but one of the people on the list is silly enough to insist on using a hotmail address, and as such it can take 10s of minutes, to send the email to her account, and meanwhile, all addresses listed after hers (or rather before, as sendmail seems to process the TO addresses backwards) have to wait anda wait till hotmail bothers to accept the mail. is there an easy way to fork off each mail address or similar?

If it is a single user, why not just place her on top of the list ( since sendmail is processing it backwards )

You could tweak timeout.* parameters for initial connections so if it fails to connect within say 3 mins itll return to the queue. Also since you're using formail you can add a "Precedence: " header on send, filter hers to have a lower value than the rest to give it a lower prio in the queue, default is zero, bulk, list etc are lower, say you give her "junk" (minus 30 , IIRC heh).
