If you don't play World of Warcraft, then I'd be a bit concerned about someone who may have gotten into your account, bouncing email off your account or you/they maybe even set up automatic forwarding. Try logging into your account from the hotmail website and make sure your not automatically forwarding anything, change your password to something complex, and even reinstall Thunderbird and remove all user settings, then reinstall.
