Problems sending mail to Hotmail accounts

Over the last couple of days all mails sent by us to Hotmail addresses have been spat back: 

SMTP error from remote server for MAIL FROM command, host: hotmail-com.olc.protection.outlook.com (xxx.xx.xx.xxx) reason: 550 5.7.1 Unfortunately, messages from [xx.xxx.x.xxx] weren't sent. Please contact your Internet service provider since part of their network is on our block list (S3140). 

 

If this error message is correct, could someone at Plusnet please get us unblocked?

 

Thanks.

Re: Problems sending mail to Hotmail accounts

550 5.7.1 Unfortunately, messages from [xx.xxx.x.xxx] weren't sent

-------------------------------------------

Is xx.xxx.x.xxx and IP address?

If yes, what are the first 3 octets please?  Without there, there is little chance of identifying the issue.

550 5.7.1 is an error code which can arise for a host of reasons and the reason stated might not be entirely helpful.
