Hotmail eats (or never receives) mail from one account

    OK, bear with me a bit.

    I have three email accounts: (I'll misname them a bit):
    , ,

    For the I use the host isp web browser (very sucky, by
    the way). I use IE7 on all machines. All the settings (browser, etc)
    are set to defaults.

    I can send and receive email to and from each acount EXCEPT:
    mail from TO never arrives. No bounce, no
    error; just a blank silence. And no, it is not in the Junk or Spam
    folders.

    That is the only case that fails.

    Weirder: I can send email from [email protected] TO and the
    arrives find, and then I can even reply to it! It's only email
    sourced from that does the Houdini thing.

    I called 'myisp.com' to see if they could trace the email. "You must
    have the browser issue". They are less than clueless.

    I suspect some sort of spammy issue but how to find it? How can I
    trace it?

    Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

    and then it got weird.

    Give SamSpade a try http://tinyurl.com/29v88q
    It will trace emails and verify email addresses.

    Whoa! What happened here?

    First I gave a good email addie to SamSpade and it traced it without
    error. Then I gave it the hotmail account and got this:

    Trace hotmail.com (64.4.32.7) ...
    67.135.38.225 RTT: 3ms TTL:170 (No rDNS)
    67.134.196.189 RTT: 11ms TTL:170 (tuk-edge-03.inet.qwest.net
    fraudulent rDNS)
    205.171.11.49 RTT: 11ms TTL:170 (tuk-core-01.inet.qwest.net
    fraudulent rDNS)
    67.14.12.6 RTT: 29ms TTL:170 (svl-core-01.inet.qwest.net
    fraudulent rDNS)
    205.171.214.30 RTT: 30ms TTL:170 (pax-edge-01.inet.qwest.net
    fraudulent rDNS)

    So can anyone interpret this for me? Thanks (again)

    You appear to be posting out of New York? Would your ISP
    happen to be Road Runner and woukd it be RR accounts that
    don't get through to hotmail accounts?

    No, I'm in Oregon. But who knows where my ISP could be? My ISP is
    ipowerweb, and they certainly are now without 'issues'.

    I have no clue about RR accounts.

    Oopsie. Your email address (djarvinen at gmail dot com) is in the
    headers. So now everyone knows all your real email addresses, you panty-
    sniffing, shipwrecked rabbit-sucker.

    Yeh, yeh... I know its free. But since I do have to put up with ads,
    you think they would have at least some rudimentary support other than
    an insipid FAQ or 'email us' (which I did; no answer).

    Use a HOSTS file and you don't have to put up with the ads, on any
    site. http://someonewhocares.org/hosts/hosts

    # For Windows 9x and ME place this file at "C:\Windows\hosts"
    # For NT, Win2K and XP use "C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts"
    # or "C:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts"
