Where do you get that it's from Microsoft. It looks like it's a Hotmail address. And I've never seen much point to blocking spam email addresses anyway because most of them use numerous email accounts. No matter what you try to do, you will always receive spam.

Spammers grab Hotmail addresses by the thousands, use them for a bit, then discard them as they do other popular E-mail providers. Unless you consistently get Spam from one address, blocking them by address is wasted effort (especially if they appear in your E-mail provider's SPAM box). If you do wish to manually take some action, it is far better to block keywords.
Cheers,
John

Hi DHCP, ley me start by saying that I am NOT an expert nor am I a BC advisor/helper/mod. But I do have a hotmail email address that I only use for communication with family and friends. I was recieving alot of spam at one time so I know how frustrating it can be. I solved the problem simply by setting my junk mail filter to "Enhanced". What that does is it only allows messages from addresses in my address book to make it into my inbox, all others are automatically deleted. It's hard to say where the emails you are recieving are coming from. Headers can be forged. Not saying that you should do as I did, just giving you some input.

I also have a hotmail account and recieve alot of spam from people with hotmail accounts.
One inparticular was something to do with MSN/hotmail closing down or some crap. I knew the email wasn't legit because it would be in the news and such if it was.

Unfortunatly there isn't much you can do. Wether you know the person or not.

Teenage.Zombiee is back ! :halloween:

This isn't convenient for the person who receives e-mails from other than the contacts in the address book.
