I have two hotmail accounts. One is used for family contacts and this one is used for net activities. This one gets at least 4 to 5 emails per day that wants me to add more inches to my weiner. Sometimes it is 4 to 5 inches to make it over a foot long salami.
I am not even talking about the bulk mail box in hotmail that gets filled with more xxx stuff. Amazingly the other account only gets one or two a month any junk mail. Of course my business account gets filled with 50 emails a day that tries to sell me something.
How many are getting these stuff?
I then put in the rules to block what ever sender. So far my XXX unwelcome ad list has dropped to almost nothing.

A problem I face is I admin one website (well suppose to) but I've still got the webmasters alias account, which means I get anything that goes to any address at that domain.
I keep ending up with these adverts directed at yellowbear or tellowbear or some letter abbreviation from these companies that think I'm going to use credit cards on their Porn sites.
I wouldn't waste my time with porn, for one there is no point using a card even if you did have one, as porn sites are a hackers "Card-mining" exercise, as how many people are going to complain about their card being misused if they have been buying porn.
Another point is people that think "Oooo! I'll use this Name and Pass for a porn site that I got from this hack site" really are dumb, using that you've just incriminated your own asse, as that isn't a free account, that's someones data-mined card being misused.
Simply put the only real way of knocking these people out with their SPAM, is by the slow evolution of the mail gateways. Hopefully one day you'll have an address that is set to your machine, with a signature.
This way the servers piping the mail through can check with your machine to authenticate the signature, and if it's inaccurate it will delete the mail.
(Possibly using a similar system to PGP with their Key Server)
Those particular servers that pipeline could block un-signed e-mails from passing through, but it will mean no more spoofing.

put your mail on exclusive. :)
....4 to 5 emails per day that wants me to add more inches....
I get as many for reduction surgery. I guess it all depends where about on the Inet you mostly hang out.
I stopped using hotmail for this reason.
I was tired of getting spam for becoming a triple D cup and adding 2.5 inches to my penis. That is just scary!
I have two mails (actually more, but 2 most common used)
One is for my friends and the other is for web forms and such.
Amazingly I haven't received a spam in about 5 months.
But I use a firewall which denyes all requests, have no spyware inside (ad-aware) and must be a bit lucky:p
hotmail is awful. never, for any purpose...
don't use it
I often get emails about a free university diploma, but I just delete it.
I feel lucky to be spared from spam.
I use five emailadresses: 3 hotmails (various levels of trust), one school adress and one provider adress.
I recently ran adaware, I can recommend it to everybody.
