You can avoid getting spam by following some simple rules.
First, the best and surest way to get rid of spam is to get new email addresses. Stop using
the ones that are being spammed. It is even possible to delete some email accounts.
Second, NEVER post your email address online. NEVER
Third, NEVER open an email that you don't know who it is from. Opening a spam email tells
the sender that they have "a live one" and will send even more spam.
Block third party cookies aka ad/ tracking cookies in every browser you use. Suggest using
Firefox that you can install two addons in that block ads and scripting of driveby malware installs.
The addons are NoScript and Adblock Plus.
Hotmail allows you to have up to 5 alias accounts. I use an alias when signing up to
interact with a new website. That allows me to see what if any spam the site generates and the alias
accounts are easily removed. Hotmail also does a good job of controlling spam. Simply send spam to the
junk folder and Hotmail will block it if the same domain attempts to send more spam.
