forwarding in outlook fails

I placed this question recently and the problem appeared to have been solved.
However I am now having the same trouble again.

Previous question at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/WinXP/Q_21920615.html
-----------------------------
If I forward an email from outlook it fails within a few seconds. The message is
The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

      'xxxx@hotmail.com' on 22/07/2006 08:33
            551 Bad Recipient

If I create a new email using the same email address the the message is sent OK.
Can anyone please advise.
Thanks John

I notice that both that failed emails have a hotmail address, would this be anything to do with the problem, as far as I can tell other non hotmail addresses can be forwarded to.

I disabled xp firewall and it appeared to forward the email, I will try that with the next forward I need.

The problem that raises is how to get the XP FW protection, I suppose I could keep switching it on and of but that seems a bit long winded?

Thanks

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I now have a failing of replys as well, some not all.

Once again if I turn XP firewall off the email is sent OK, any ideas please?

I found this text

To remedy this, I used to put the OUTLOOK.EXE executable in the Exceptions list in \
Firewall settings. To do so, go to Control Panel -> Windows Firewall Exceptions Tab \
-> Add Program and select Outlook from the list, or if it's not in the list, just \
browse to the location of the OUTLOOK.EXE (normally in C:\Program Files\Microsoft \
Office\ folder).

Anyone any views?

XP firewall is no protection in a NETWORKED environment with AV and antispam protection(actually it is a nuisance and is disabled through group policy on most networks) ....if this is a home user or single user environment u still require a good personal AV and antispam....but meanwhile if u want to keep windows firewall on then add it to ur exception list........just click add program and brows to the outlook.exe in the program files....
