Is anyone having problems with e-mails from Hotmail accounts not being delivered?

About a month ago a friend tried to send an e-mail from her Hotmail account to my NTL e-mail address. She got a message telling her that the delivery was delayed, so she tried a few more times with the same result. Fortunately I still have an account with Boltblue, which I rarely use, so she was able successfully to send the message to the Boltblue address. I have never received her original e-mails.

Since Tuesday another friend, who is also with Hotmail, has been trying to e-mail me and has received similar messages from the postmaster telling him that the delivery is delayed. To date I have not received anything from him, whereas there had never been any problems in the four or five months that he has been using this Hotmail account. He always logs on to his e-mail via a web browser, Internet Explorer, I think, rather than using a package such as Eudora or Outlook.

NTL has recently introduced some very effective spam filtering, so I am wondering if this is the culprit. Before I contact NTL, I would like to know if any other list members have experienced similar problems.
