How to retrieve blocked emails from Hotmail account.

Resolved Question:

I am trying to retrieve blocked emails from my Hotmail account. The sender's email address was mistakenly blocked and therefore I have not received emails since about the middle of January 2010. I would really like to retrieve the blocked emails and am willing to pay the expert as I would like this problem resolved today if possible. Is this problem rectifiable or am I wasting my time?

Open up your Browser and go to and sign in to your account. Click on the Options on the top right and click More Options.
Under Junk Email, click "Safe and Blocked Senders".

Now, click Blocked Senders

Select the blocked email from the list and click '<' button. This will unblock the email address. And you'll start receiving new emails from that address

I'm sorry but you can't recover messages that didn't received to your account that you're blocked. You will need to ask the senders to resend the messages. I know this is not the answer you want, but there is no known way to retrieve those messages. To know more about it, you have to contact Hotmail help.
