    I'm guessing that you are using the mail.app add-on that allows you to view hotmail in mail.app. I think the problem was that one of the Hotmail mailboxes had filled up (it may have been a junk-mail overload, or just the mails not deleting after I downloaded them). Try going to hotmail proper and checking to see if you have any room left.

    Of course, if you were doing everything through the Hotmail site, then I have no idea why that might have happened.

    I checked my .Mac account and it said I had 331 messages in my box, but when I deleted the ones on the first page, nothign else was there.

    I remotely checked my e-mail for my two business sites, and one of them had like two-month old e-mails, but nothing else...

    Yes, weird.
