emails from hotmail to aol keep getting returned

  mco 09:15 17 Jul 2005

They worked fine before but two of my best mates are on aol and I'm on hotmail.In the last couple of weeks emails I send to them have been delayed and then failed to go.(I can get theirs ok) What is it with hotmail and aol? Is it them? Why is it not working now when it did before? Is it just a temporary thing? Cheers!

... have you checked that the email addresses for your mates have not been corrupted in your address book? Alternatively, have your mates changed their user ids? Try asking your mates each to send you a test email, use the reply button to send it back to them and see what happens

What is the exact messsage you get when the emails are returned?

This may be AOL's over-the-top anti-spam at work. Have you tried sending a message from a non-Hotmail account?

the message is that one from the 'postmaster' first saying it's been delayed then failed. I'll try from another non hotmail address. I reckon it must be their spam filter.
