    Really frustrated as I'm waiting for a couple of important things via email. I can send email fine from hotmail to other accounts. When I send an email from another account to my hotmail I do not get an error message but still no email shows up in hotmail. Yesterday some emails were delayed, but I've now had nothing for hours and I sent some from other accounts that should be there.

    I've tried deleting messages, sending a message from hotmail to see if that kick-started it, checking my privacy settings (they're fine, not on exclusive, checking my blocked senders list - none of the email accounts I know have sent me messages are there).

    Please help!! I'll be very grateful!

    Sounds like a problem with Hotmail. It's not the most reliable e-mail system.

    yeah, it seems that way, have had the email address for years without problem though - looking on forums for a solution has shown me just how many problems there are...

    How about gmail? Is it more reliable?

    It's a total pain, but definitely helpful to know it's not just one account!
