Thanks rundwald, I have had an email from madasafish but since I am actually already a plusnet customer and arranged to keep the madasafish email address some time ago I don't think that was the reason for the problem, which now strangely seems to have cured itself.....
Thanks to those who have tried to help...

Well then, the problem must have been outside your system and outside of your control. Glad to hear it has resolved itself, but I hate when things fix themselves and I don't know why or how. Good luck.

Agreed it helps when the problem goes away but then you don't know when or if it might come back....

Hmm, I've been a bit unhappy with Windows Live Mail recently, it's been crashing a lot and been responding slowly I know a friend of mine is using an email address from www.1and1.com and is happy with them, so I'm thinking of jumping ship and using that instead

I'm here for this same reason..delayed big time...My email hit's my phone instantly but not on WLM...I'm wondering what the issue is..How do I make WLM the default? maybe that's the reason. I can send mail out via WLM instantly to my other email account also on WLM and it shows fast on my phone. So it's sending email.

It's still working OK for me now but I've no idea what the problem was as it cured itself.
