Hotmail & SPAM

Just lately, SPAM has been sent from one of my Hotmail accounts to some of my contacts - no doubt by an external spamming machine. I've checked the 'Sent Items' folder and they appear there as sent messages.

I've sent Microsoft a report on this and I'm awaiting a response.

Any advice?

Microsoft will not reply to you. In Hotmail if you get Spam or similar unwanted emails I would start by using the top option that says mark as Phishing Scam.

Never open Spam, if you are getting a lot say hundreds I would perosnally start fresh and sign up for a new Hotmail email address.

Thanks, Audio~~Chip, but it's MY account that's sending the SPAM.
