    Again, since the sender is probably a hijacked system, you would be corrupting someone elses system. In many countries, that could land you in prison. Regardless of your intentions.

    Yea, I understand that. You're correct. It definitely could be someone else's system who has nothing to do with it. Damn. I hope some smart hackers can get their hands on all this and notice that those spam emails are taking business away from them.

    Good luck!

    I also use Hotmail and have been inundated with Spam emails since day 1.
    Last year I joined Windows 10 Insider and created a Microsoft account using Hotmail to do so.
    Along the way I was notified that my original Hotmail account would be updated as part of their process and that did happen.
    This Aug I had 200 Spam emails in my Hotmail account, 0 between 2 Yahoo email accounts.
    This Sep I had “only” 71 Spam emails in my Hotmail account, 0 between both Yahoo email accounts.
    Between last year and this Aug, I have no idea how many Spam emails were being received in Hotmail; all I recall is frustratingly emptying the Junk Email folder.
    I never responded to any of them and just about every topic that can be included in Spam emails were brought up. Eventually I found out it’s supposed to be possible to block them in my Manage My Microsoft Account where I can View My Inbox; it didn’t help.
    I asked for help in the Microsoft Community; they wanted to be helpful but were not successful in providing a resolution.
    Unfortunately even though I wanted to participate in the Windows 10 Insider Program I didn’t. I paid attention to it and it has done me very well but I did not want to create a mailing list in my Microsoft account.
    I don’t expect a resolution to the Spam emails but wanted to share my story.
