Hotmail, spam etc

  Diodorus Siculus 20:46 12 Jul 2008

Evening all,

I've had my hotmail address since August 1998 and have used it a lot; recently thought it has been deluged by Spam, so much so that it is next to impossible to use it for anything productive.

Is there any solution? Upgrading to a paid version? I'll be sad to see it go so thought it would be worthwhile asking here just in case anyone had any solution.

Many thanks,

Have you gone over to windows live ? click here . You still use the original email address.

Yes, that's what I have.

Thanks for the reply.

I'm going abroad for a few years so need a reliable webmail. I have Yahoo premium but would like to keep Hotmail if possible so need to try to reduce the spam if possible.

Can only think of keep deleting the junk mails via the arrow near the junk folder.
Otherwise create a new account and advise all.

I think I'll just let it go... I have a premium yahoo account which I upgraded to so will stay with yahoo. A few people still use my hotmail so I will redirect them to Yahoo.

Thanks all, Dio
