Window Live Mail & Hotmail

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.

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 xxxxx@hotamil.com to a send email to xxxxxx@hotmail.com. Its the sender address that raises the message that sender is not recognised. Note the email is sent and received OK. Thanks David
