I have windows vista,mainly use windows live hotmail using internet explorer 7.I have a friend using XP home with MacAfee security who doesn't receive my emails yet if I send a yahoo e-mail it does arrive. I have told her to put my live mail address in contacts and also to go into tools/security etc and enter it as an accepted address which has been done but without any improvement.Does she need to tell her firewall to accept and if so how?She tells me that she doesn't appear to have a bulk or junk folder which I don't understand.Can anyone help or give any suggestions.

Thanks for offer of help.
My friend uses Outlook Express.Since putting my "Live" address in her allowed list she does now receive e-mails from my "live" address but if I use any of the graphics or background colours she doesn't which is weird to me.I can only think it is a problem of her MacAfee security blocking them.

Yes it has a spam filter but I'm not sure that she knows how to use it and I'm not familiar with MacAfee :thumbsup:

I didn't need McAfee's Spam Filtering when I had McAfee because I use web based email.
To be honest, Id rather get spammed for therest of my life than deal with McAfee again :thumbsup:

Thanks for your interest.We have decided to keep in touch using my yahoo address as the problem doesn't occur then.
By the way I agree about MacAfee I won't be using it myself.
Thanks again
Cannybody :thumbsup:
