Yes, the most likely explanation for what you are experiencing is that
Hotmail is blocking some of your incoming messages under the
erroneous assumption they are spam.

I use windows mail to send emails from my wanadoo (orange) account, as far
as i'm aware all my emails are received except when i send to hotmail
I have sent emails to my own hotmail acoount, some arrive some don't, it.s
hit and miss. I don't have hotmail set up in my windows mail, so i assume
that i look at hotmail using a browser.
I've looked this up on the internet and it would seem that hotmail block
orange email accounts because of spam. Is this true??
Apologies to danielle, i seem to have imposed on your post.
