No, most DNS server don't reduce it to the first subdomain level only. So *.example.com will also serve a.b.c.d.example.com. On wildcard certificates you're righ...

Re: One more post about port 25

The bounce message is generated by hmailserver. So outgoing traffic on port 25 seems not blocked for you. For a bounce message you don't need incoming port open.

You have to request an unblocking at microsoft or ask amazon to do that for you.
