According to smtp log, the message sent out to 813 recipients of that list on May 25, 2010 10:39:40. Within the next 5 minutes, this message re-send to 15 members of the list ( according to post log, no message is posted to this list or any other lists for 60 minutes after this message)

1) You will have to look at the maillog on the mailserver to see the message sent and accepted by hotmail (I can pretty much guarantee that hotmail accepted the message).

2) If anyone is counting on hotmail to deliver critical emails they are complete and total morons. Hotmail is *not* reliable and often discards messages with no notice to the receiver.
