I've just moved to outlook.com due to poor service in general from my previous email providers (although their forum members and  moderators were very good/helpful. 


In the 14 days since I set up my new outlook email, I've had shedloads of emails first delayed and then 'unable to deliver'. Roughly 1 in every 6 or 7 fail.


The crazy thing is that more than half of the 'failed to deliver' emails are either to another outlook address or to a Hotmail address. The Hotmail postmaster is struggling with some internal problem?


Anyone else having similar problems, please?

er, I'm somewhat confused. I've just open an email - part below -  telling me that someone has replied but there's no reply showing. Does it mean that he/she has deleted it?


The reply to the info requested by him/her is


"From the postmaster @mail.hotmail.com 

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

Unable to deliver message to the following recipients, due to being unable to connect successfully to the destination mail server.
