email non-delivery problem

  griffo 17:55 15 May 2008

I have discovered that Outlook is not delivering email to various Hotmail accounts from my Laptop, whereas the same emails to the same addresses go through fine from my desktop PC.

Both PC's use Outlook 2003, XP SP2, and Kaspersky 7.

Sometimes I get a failed delivery message but mostly, I don't.

Has anyone got any ideas what I can check to try to cure this problem please?

Turn Kaspersky off and try it.If it works you know the faults with kaspersky.

I'll try that and let you know - but as I said, I'm running the same version of Kaspersky on both PC's

I tried switching Kaspersky off and sending a test email to a hotmail account that has failed to receive from me before and - it failed again!!

Any more ideas please folks?

I know that Outlook express is stopping you using Hotmail accounts.But not sure about Outlook.

why would OE stop emails to Hotmail?

I often get non-delivery to hormail from a forum i run, I think it's a problem with hotmail servers, bot with your Outlook.

Re-sending sometimes gets it through.

Try directing the problem at hoymail themselves, if enough people complain they will have to rectify it.

They are stopping you from accessing Hotmail accounts in outlook Express.Now I don't know if it has already started but this year some time.

Thinking further about this, I don't see this is the problem because both my PC's use the same software.

Surely, it has to be something specific to my laptop?

Can you get one of Hotmail accounts to contact you.Then just press reply and see if it delivers Ok then.

Yep - tried that and it still doesn't deliver from the laptop.
