Outlook.com not receiving mail
Fellow geeks, once again I need your input.
I have an Outlook.com email address, this main address has three aliases. As of last night, the main address only receives mail from Microsoft mail services (Outlook.com, Hotmail, Live). From all other service providers, it seems that I can only receive mail from German providers, and (really odd!) from the Seven Forums .
One alias receives mail normally, two other aliases receive nothing. Friends sending mail from Finland, Sweden and other countries can send mail normally but I never receive the messages. Sending from my own Finnish address, the Outlook.com main address and three aliases received nothing.
Short: Outlook.com main address receives mail only if sender has an @outlook.com, @hotmail.com, @hotmail.co.uk, @live.com or @live.co.uk address or if the service provider is local (German). One alias can receive mail totally normally, everything comes through. Two aliases receive nothing, not even mail from Microsoft or German services.
All accounts, main and aliases, can send normally.
As one more test I asked fellow geek and guru, our member Julian to send me a message to all four addresses using a non-Microsoft address. He did that, and as I suspected only that functioning alias received his test mail.
He also sent a personal message to my main address using his @live.co.uk address. This message came through as expected.

If you have any thoughts on the subject, please let me know.

My own test mails from my Finnish service provider arrived today after 10 AM. They were sent yesterday between 8:30 AM and 11 AM.
Julian's test message has yet not arrived, nor haven't I got some mail messages that I know have been sent to me yesterday, for instance from my sister in Finland and a close friend in Ireland.
