Hi, 

I don't see that the 2 things could be connected but I have just got a new Samsung galaxy S3 & signed into my hotmail account ok but yesterday morning it was used to send spam . I changed the password & last night I got numerous message on the phone saying login failed, then they got in again so I changed the password again. Now I am getting the log in failed messages again

What should I do? Short of deleting the account

Have you tried changing the security questions, or alternate means of retrieving your password if you forget it. Sounds like they know your alternate means ie "answering security questions correctly," and they're getting your password that way.
