    The amount of spam in my email inbox is increasing faster than usual, I don't open any suspicious mail I see, I report all the junk-email and delete them immediately.
    The spammers have declared war.

    You mentioned that in earlier posts Nadirah. I know you are using Hotmail. I also know you said your system is a fortress. So how come all these spam? Don't you use any rules for it?

    I actually got 2 email accounts on Hotmail.
    I've set the first account's junk-email protection to the highest, so my first e-mail account is always safe and clean.
    I use my second email account for capturing junk-email. I use the second account to report all the junk-email and delete all the junk-email.

    My first Hotmail account is used mainly for receiving emails from the security forums, DCS and my spywareinfo newsletter.
    My second Hotmail account is for reporting spammers only.
