    Hello,

    This is a sign that your Hotmail account has been hacked or a spammer is using it to send emails From: your account.

    Please change your password, and all password reset and security questions & answers.

    If it's a spammer forging their spam From: your email address there is nothing you can do but create a message rule that sends those bounces to your Trash folder.

    :welcome: to Email Questions!

    I get this message ONLY when I send a group list e-mail with more than 5 contacts.
    AND I have nothing to do with Hotmail.

    Are any of the contacts Hotmail / live / msn / outlook addresses?

    What is the exact error message? Maybe one of the addresses is no longer good or has a typo?

    It could also be that someone you are sending to is forwarding their email to a Hotmail account.
