I previously got responses from the advertised postmaster contact eventually.

But if an email provider is bit bucketing email, other than as a tactical 
measure, rather than rejecting it, or quarantining it, your time is probably 
better spent advising people not to use that service.

It is not as if, since AOLs Harvard email fiasco, anyone can claim they didn't 
know it wasn't a stupid thing to be doing.

Since people have already told Hotmail it is a stupid thing to do, and they 
still do it, they are clearly stupid, or uncaring on the matter, neither is a 
good thing in an email provider.

Or as put elsewhere "real friends don't let friends use hotmail".
