    Hotmail/outlook gurus

    Hi.
    Over the last week I have had a massive increase in spam emails sent to my hotmail account.
    I have tried blocking them, but they keep coming back.
    Some also seem to have my hotmail address when I block them.
    I have changed my password but still nothing changes.

    Any idea on how to stop this? I have never had this problem before.

    Likely someone who has your address listed as a recipient has had their account hacked. Keep blocking/banning the sending addresses, it's a pest but eventually you will get on top of the issue. Can take a couple of weeks of effort some time, also can be an issues if your junk mail sorter stops working for some reason and everything gets dumped back into the inbox.

    Thanks Mauser
    Such a bloody pain.
    I guess it's just going to take time.
