cotnob said...

I just popped back to say thank you so much for your help Sue, the problem was in Safe and Blocked senders - I had 'noreply' emails blocked for some strange reason - I would never have discovered it if you hadn't pointed me in the right direction.
I agree with you I absolutely loathe outlook, the display is awful and I can certainly see no improvements from hotmail but like you say it would be such a pain to change to something else.
Thanks again for your help.
