I don't seem to be getting any emails in my Hotmail inbox anymore. They all seem to arrive in a folder called Bulk Mail. When I check this folder the emails are not bulk mail but the normal emails I get from people who know my hotmail address. Is this a new thing?
I have no "Bulk" listed,but I do have "Junk mail" I have hotmail setup to dump anything not in my address book to junk folder,and think that MSN shouldn't include its contents as a percentage of my 2Mb limit.I have been receiving several MSN cars type spam lately,and hotmail refuses to allow me to block sender for these and "Hotmail Members/Staff" junk.
Thanks Guys. I don't normally log on to my Hotmail account direct. It is setup as an email account in OE along with my normal BB account. But suddenly this new Folder "Bulk Mail" has appeared and everything seems to go in to that folder. Maybe I should log on to hotmail.com directly and see.
Getting worse I think. I have just logged in direct to my Hotmail account and there is no folder called "Bulk Mail" but in the "Junk email" folder there are 6 messages, 5 of them are your responses to my thread and the other is an email I sent to myself. I think it's time to forget hotmail???
Log onto Hotmail, on the right in very small writing you will see "Options". Click on this and select "Junk E-Mail Protection". You can then set the "Junk E-Mail Filter". I have mine set to "low". This seems to let all mail through and I then filter it manually using e-prompter before opening OE. There was a time you could turn off the filter completely in options but Hotmail seem determined to have some sort of control over what e-mail gets through and what doesn't. Personally I prefer to do any filtering myself.
