How Can I Unblock a Contact in Hotmail?

Updated March 23, 2017

Unblocking a contact in Hotmail allows the blocked contact to send you e-mail messages once again. When a contact is blocked, all e-mails from the contact are automatically deleted. Once you unblock him his e-mails will appear in your Hotmail inbox. You can adjust your blocked contacts list at any time from within the Options menu. Contacts are not notified when they are added to or removed from the blocked contacts list.
