Problems accessing login.live.com (i.e. hotmail/outlook)

I've been going insane trying to figure out why connections (http/https) are being blocked, but only when trying to access hotmail.
I have a pfsense setup as a transparent firewall.
There are no host specific rules.
The firewall is mostly for prioritising traffic, so a legacy cisco router is attached to the wan interface and handles NAT & VPN duties.
All other http/https traffic seems to work.
The connection is blocked at the syn/ack response from live.com (131.253.61.*).
Performing packet capture shows syn packets going out and syn/ack packets coming back (visible on wlan (xl0) and bridged interface).
Packet capture shows no sign of the syn/ack packets on the lan interface.
State entries exist, but to my mind seem to be getting ignored. i.e.
bge0 tcp 22.214.171.124:443 <- 192.168.0.46:60260 CLOSED:SYN_SENT
bridge0 tcp 192.168.0.46:60260 -> 126.96.36.199:443 ESTABLISHED:SYN_SENT
bge0 tcp 188.8.131.52:443 <- 192.168.0.46:60261 CLOSED:SYN_SENT
bridge0 tcp 192.168.0.46:60261 -> 184.108.40.206:443 ESTABLISHED:SYN_SENT
bge0 is the lan interface.
xl0 is the wan interface.
Any ideas would be of help, I haven't added any rules or more details, since all other sites appear to work, so I don't believe its a rule/routing/etc problem.

I am having the same problem. In this case to with login.live.com to use microsoft volume licencing. I hope there is a solution.
