I am a HOTMAIL User and I Can’t Receive Emails

You can try the following instructions, but really your best bet is to re-register with a non-Hotmail email address. Hotmail won’t allow companies to email you unless they pay for the privilege (yes, they want people to pay money to send Hotmail members email).

But if you really want to try to receive the emails at your Hotmail email account, these instructions are supposed to work:

  • Log into your Hotmail Account
  • Add the sender’s email address to your Contacts list
  • Click Options
  • On the left side of the page, click Mail
  • Click Junk E-Mail Protection
  • Click Safe List
  • Type the sender’s domain, for example glocksoft.com
  • Click Add

Once you add the sender to your Safe List, you should be able to receive all email that he sends you.

Note that it can sometimes take a while to receive mail from Hotmail. If after doing the above you still aren’t receiving the email, you should check your basic preferences to make sure you aren’t filtering too much mail. To do this:

  • Log into your Hotmail Account
  • Click Options
  • Click Junk E-Mail Protection
  • Click Junk E-Mail Filter
  • Make sure your filter is set to low.

This should be enough to stop Hotmail from deleting your wanted emails. If not, you should contact Hotmail and ask them to stop deleting the email from this or that sender.

If Hotmail won’t allow you receive your email, you’ll need to register with a different email address. None of the other email providers take over their members inboxes like Hotmail does.
