I have been using the same hotmail address for 12 years, was able to use it with outlook express for most of that time. \
Always check your junk folder \ if email address was wrong the sender will get a notice that it was
Spammers have hacked hotmail accounts lately \ change passwords like you would (ihope) your underwear ...often
I'm aware of the hackers, but usually when your hotmail is hacked, everything
is wiped, not just one message.
Go to the persons that sent you the email open their sent items and check.
That won't be possible, I only know the person who sent this email by name, so he won't be letting me rummage through his folders. My suspicion was that the copy and pasted original message was a cover-up because the person who was meant to send it forgot.
If not, I suspect that there was something wrong with his email account but refuses to admit responsibility (since the email was for a extremely important annual trip. Now that I've missed it, I will have to wait until next year)
Here's the details (apparently the sender saved a copy of the email)
Sent: 31 March 2011 20:21
To: [email protected]
I don't know where to go on from here.
Realistically, I'm looking for a technical answer which can provide tangible evidence rather than simple investigation (since no-one's going to admit responsibility here).
Edit: From the message, email address is correct...
It would have bounced back to recipient if it were wrong anyway.
