The message is coming from hotmail and not your computer.
for some reason hotmail has blocked your email account. This happens sometimes when your email account gets compromised usually due to a virus or worm. you have to contact hotmail support. If its due to a virus or worm they're going to tell you to remove it first and they may not reactivate the account again. But first try changing your password if that doesn't work use the Windows Live Validation Page to reset your password https://windowslivehelp.com/PasswordReset.aspx

Good luck

Why is Hotmail not sending emails with attachments from my account?


Good afternoon
I would look at the settings at the E- mail account. You might have to change the settings for incoming and outgoing servers.
I phone my service provider who has helped me.
all the best

Unblock hotmail


If all else fails - try recreating your Hotmail -which will tell you that the user name is taken. and you can call them to fix it or you can create a new email address - unless you already have a second email address - then send Hotmail a email saying that your Hotmail was hijacked or hacked. this will get your Hotmail unblocked.

I cant get locked in to www.hotmail.com since updating my AVG anti virus protection


Windows Live Hotmail normally loads without issue, but several problems on your computer can restrict access to your account.
Firewalls with high security sensitivity, malicious spyware and disabled cookies are three of the main reasons for blocked Hotmail accounts.
Hotmail also does not load if Microsoft blocks your account for spamlike activity.
This can happen if your account was compromised, or hacked.
Cookies

If cookies are disabled on your Internet browser, Hotmail cannot load.
Cookies store specific data about you that you have provided to a website, such as your name or address.
To turn on cookies in Internet Explorer, click "Tools" and "Internet Options."
Click "Privacy." Move the slider from "Block All Cookies" to "Medium."
This security level blocks advertising cookies but enables the cookies that allow you to access your Hotmail.
To enable Firefox cookies, click "Tools," "Options" and "Privacy."
Click "Use Custom Settings for History."
Enable cookies to view your Hotmail messages.

Check for Spyware
Spyware is a type of malicious software that steals your personal information or disables functions of your computer.
Spyware on your computer may block access to your Hotmail.
Run an anti-spyware or anti-virus program, such as Norton, AVG or Avira.
If you have a spyware or virus infection on your computer, these programs find and destroy it.
Some malware affects the "hosts" file on your computer.
Find and open the file "C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts" in Notepad.
Look for "passport.com" or "hotmail.com."

If you see either, malware has possibly infected the file.
Change the IP address affiliated with the file name to eliminate the problem.


Blocked Accounts Hotmail blocks accounts when it detects spamlike behavior from them.
For example, if hundreds of advertisements are sent from your account in just a few minutes, Hotmail views this as spam and blocks your account.
If you are not sending spamlike emails or instant messages, someone may have guessed your password and accessed your account.
If Hotmail blocks your account, you have the option to enter your cellphone number as verification that you are the true account owner.
When you enter your number, Microsoft sends a text message to that phone number.
Retrieve the verification code from the text message and enter it on the Sign-In page.
When you access your account, change the password immediately.

Other Options

Your firewall may block access to Hotmail or cause emails to not load.
To determine if the firewall is the problem, disable it temporarily and try to access your mail. Firewall settings are sometimes set too high.
Lower the security sensitivity before you attempt to log in to Hotmail.
If you notice other websites not loading, reset your router.
This solves many connection issues.
Check the clock on your computer.
An inaccurate clock may block you from loading Hotmail.
To ensure your clock's accuracy, click the clock in the bottom-right corner of the task bar.
Click "Date and Time" and "Internet Time."
Click "Change Settings."
Click the check box next to "Synchronize With an Internet Time Server."
Click "OK."

I cannot send emails from my hotmail account.


Here are the most common reasons for this problem, which is a common complaint.

Email file attachments problem At the time of writing, Hotmail lets you send email attachments of upto 10MB (free accounts). Are you trying to attach a file that's too large? Also, Hotmail may not send emails with files attachments that it thinks can harm its servers or the recipient's computer. Try sending the message without the attachment and see if it goes through.
You may also be interested in knowing how to attach a large file to an email message.
Browser support If the email composition window doesn't open, the browser you are working on is probably not supported by Hotmail. In this case, use another web browser - there are tens of these programs available for free - check the browser list. The technology behind Hotmail may not work with newly released browsers (has happened before) and really old ones.
A case in point is issue faced by Firefox users who find that Hotmail is not attaching the original message to forwards and replies.
Surpassed the limit set by Hotmail Hotmail would also not send emails if you have surpassed the limit of outgoing messages set by the service. This problem is typically encountered by prolific Hotmail users. Why is an email sending limit set on Hotmail accounts? So that people (the bad ones) do not abuse the system. All online email services are known to be plagued with spammers - people who send tens of hundreds (millions?) of unsolicited messages. Hotmail has an automatic check and if your account triggers it, you would not be able to send emails.
Problem in sending email from a new Hotmail email account Taking the above point forward, to protect itself from spammers, Hotmail sets a lower limit of sending email messages from new accounts. This limit is gradually increased (probably automatically) as time passes. So if you have sent a whole bunch of emails the day you created the account, Hotmail will most likely not understand that you've done is out of excitement; it's going to think you are a spammer and abusing the service.
New users may also need to go through the Windows Live Hotmail email verification process. This is simply to ensure that the address is being operated by a human and not by a spambot and will stop Hotmail from asking you to verify the account each time.
Hotmail account blocked from send email? A Hotmail account can be blocked from sending email if the system believes that the subscriber has behaved like a spammer! So if you get a 'This account is currently blocked from sending messages', please read that article to know more and to get the issue sorted out with Hotmail staff.
Account closed An account closed message is displayed for the same reason - sending more emails in a day than the limit. You can always contact Hotmail support via abuse@hotmail.com email address - which is kind of ironic because if you can't send emails, how can you send one to the support department? And this brings up the important requirement of having multiple email accounts.
Also, though there is a Hotmail phone number (customer service), I suggest you post a complaint at the Windows Live Solutions Center (WLSC) web site.
By the way, since no real human being is actually monitoring your account - it's all automatic - you may have accidently triggered off the limit check. These false alerts should be taken with a pinch of salt (as long as you know you aren't guilty of misusing the service). You can either send an message to the Hotmail staff at the above mentioned email address or visit WLSC.
If everything fails and you still can't send emails from Hotmail - well, your guess is as good as mine. Try sending the email from another account. You can always get a Gmail account for free which works quite like a Hotmail account.

Somebody or something is sending Email from my Hotmail-Account. Since it is Spam I don't like that. the messages are saved in my "sent-messages folder" but they are forwarded messages to many of...


It sounds like you can still login to your account, have you tried resetting the password when you are logged into the hotmail account? Preferably to something with some upper case characters and numbers in it?

If someone currently has access that should stop them logging in again.

Your message was not sent


Your account has been temporarily blocked from sending messages. This block can be caused by sending messages that trigger our spam filters, or by having too many recipients in one email. We encourage you to review the contents and recipient list of your message, and try sending it at after an hour or two. Doing so will usually resolve the matter.
If you are still unable to send messages after a 24-hour period, please read our FAQ for more information and to request Customer Care assistance.


We apologize for the inconvenience.
