Now, Hotmail has reportedly had some issues this past couple of days, perhaps you experience that? I wonder if there is something else interfering with your mail receipt in the evenings? Like WiFi not switching over or something?
Not necessarily so if you have the device set to go to turn on and off at certain times. If it goes to sleep then all functions are stopped until the device wakes up again and then all mail is received at that time.
