    Hotmail problem?

    As of friday, emails from an address I have had forwarded to my hotmail address for about 8 years seems to have stopped working.

    Changed the settings to forward the address to different (non-hotmail) account and the emails all came flooding through.

    Have M$ stopped the ability to allow forwarded emails through??

    They aren't being dumped into the junk mail folder are they?

    Can you add the address to your safe list.

    they aren;t coming through at all. Ive used this method of forwading this particular email address to my hotmail for about 8 years and its worked fine up till friday

    I intially thought it was a problem with the forwading, but as soon as i changed that to point to my school email, all the weekends emails came through at once.

    Can you just send an email from that account to the hotmail account?

    What about adding the whole sending domain to your safe list.

    MS update the filters and rules all the time so it's possible that it's now filtered.

    sending from pop3 accounts from that domain gets through to the hotmail account. Seems its just this autofowader (its just an alias that goes straight to hotmail).

    Ill email the provider see if anythings up their end

    Thanks for the suggesitons
