Website Blocked "Not found on any Blacklist" (hotmail.com)


#1

Recently our PiHole is acting random when visiting www.hotmail.com. It gives the reason “Not found on any blacklist” as why it is flagged…

I’ve tried whitelisting hotmail.com and www.hotmail.com, both via the web interface and using the pihole -w command (after removing them from the web interface whitelist and rebooting), but it keeps popping up… Sometimes, not every time.
After whitelisting the pages via pihole -w the error page does state “This site has been whitelisted, please flush your DNS cache and/or restart your browser”. i’ve done all these things but the PiHole keeps giving the same messages. However, sometimes it just redirects you to outlook.live.com, but it looks almost random…I’ve also whitelisted outlook.live.com but since it states on the pihole page that www.hotmail.com or hotmail.com have been blocked, I don’t think that will make any difference.

Any ideas? I’ve noticed the FTLDNS message on top of the page but the PiHole is currently running in our office environment and I’m not really inclined to start beta testing it here. There’s about 200 users active at any time so downtime is pretty costly…
