Window Live Mail & Hotmail

  David4637 15:11 PM 25 Jun 11

When I send a Hotmail email from within Windows Live Mail, I look in the hotmail sent box and a yellow message says "Sender not recognised." This yellow coloured message across the top of the page appears, even though the email has been sent and recieved OK. Any ideas how to stop this message appearing?

Thanks David

Windows Live Mail checks against your contact book for senders to see if it recognises them. I think that if you put your own name with your hotmail address in contacts then the problem will disappear.

Thanks for your reply, tried adding my hotmail name and email address to the Contacts in WLM, still get the "error message"? Please help, Thanks David

To clarify further. I have created a Hotmail account in WLMail, so I can send an email via my Tiscali account, or send via Hotamil with a my email address of [email protected] to a send email to [email protected] Its the sender address that raises the message that sender is not recognised. Note the email is sent and received OK. Thanks David
