I use Outlook Express 6 and I email several times a day to a Hotmail account (paid account) they receive my emails day after day then they wont receive my emails but get them from other people ok. I look in my sent box and they have all sent ok.

When you send emails they don't go directly to the recipient, they just go to the recipients email server until the recipient goes online to collect them.

When your email program says the email was "sent" ok, that just means it got to the recipient's server. As far as Outlook Express is concerned, it was delivered.

The problem must be with your email servers (those operated by your ISP or hotmail) or with the email servers of your recipients ISP. You will need to discuss it with the ISP's concerned.

If the matter is not resolved, i would consider an alternative to hotmail. It's massive popularity and user-base is it's downfall in some ways, and I'm not convinced a subscription account offers any real improvements. Free or otherwise, all that massive bulk of emails and junk still have to pass through the same servers.
