Hotmail, and AOL, provide various feedback systems, the SPAM-L archive discusses relative merits. The more clueful of the providers return all you need to know in the reject message. Ultimately if you are sending bulk email, and a significant number of the recipients claim it is unsolicited, the big email providers are going to block you, whether the recipients are right or wrong about the solicited nature of the list. Hotmail silently bitbucket email from us regularly (we have a lot of rarely used forwards, so the little bits of spam that leak through count badly against our email server), we've given up on Hotmail, but I think it is possible to ask for a whitelisting.
