More than 20,000, Email Addresses Blocked by Microsoft:

The ARRL IT staff has been notified that Microsoft is blocking e-mail to the more than 20,000 members who use the e-mail forwarding service to forward e-mail to Microsoft domains (,, and In addition, the blockage is also affecting those members of the ARRL's Field Organization and other ARRL volunteers who use an alias e-mail address to have e-mail delivered to an address with a Microsoft domain. According to ARRL Information Technology Manager Michael Keane, K1MK, the IT staff is working to have these blocks lifted and e-mail delivery restored to normal operation as quickly as possible.

I used to have an e-mail address using their forwarding service, but dropped it due to the amount of unexplained spam I began receiving. As soon as I deleted the address, and stopped the forwarding service, the amount of spam received dropped substantially. "Cause and effect" perhaps... This may indeed be the reason for Microsoft's actions.
