    But how would you know if there were emails sent to you that never arrived?

    Good follow up report, Ron. Thank you. :thumb:

    It's a bit misleading for the Windows Live Hotmail team to deem it "100% data recovery", but then to say, essentially, "except for the people whose mail bounced because they didn't sign in for the 3-6 day duration of the incident".
