Speaking of Messenger, I tried to send a few emails to one of my friends on the list but I received a message that sending them failed. I may try another option and send them from one of my other email accounts to test a theory that only my hotmail account is so affected since copies sent to my Yahoo account were received without incident. I'll have more on this later.
