Sounds like you need to call Comcast.

Well, Hotmail did direct it to my junk folder, but I did just send an email from gmail to hotmail successfully.

Good luck...

Subject: Returned mail: User unknown

FYI, in case anyone else has problems:

Comcast customers may get bounce-back messages or long delays when attempting to
send email to msn.com or hotmail.com. Microsoft is aware of the problem and is
working to resolve the issue. It's important to note that this is a problem with
the MSN/Hotmail mail servers and that the Comcast incoming and outgoing mail
servers are functioning as normal.

i'd still like to know why i can't send an email to a hotmail user via comcast.

i can't believe I'm paying for their insanely shitty service.
