jason,

i had the same problem too towards the end of last year or beginning 2006. i am not sure though whether the reason why it happened to me would be the same as yours. 

essentially when i switched from the 'old' hotmail to 'window live mail' hotmail, the post set-up was changed from so called 'fixed width' to either 'rich text' and or 'html'. somehow this did not agree with the list mechanic.  when i switched back to 'old' hotmail set up,which uses 'fixed width' everything's cool again.

computer, internet, softwares being what they are i am almost sure your problem would be a different gremlins from mine.

regards,
bw
