    I think he is syaing that somehow the email is bypassing hotmails whitelist feature. Which should allow only mails from addresses he has selected. Then again I could be wrong.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    @ Nadirah, ofc i deleted it.

    @ Chris, your right.

    Today i received the 3d one plus a postmaster sender failure notification. It seems the same spam tries to use my account to get send to others.

    Interresting devolepment. :thumbd:

    The importance now is: Should i start worrying?

    Some spammers use the email address of targeted accounts to generate additional emails to other addresses. It is another way that they try to propagate their message to as many email inboxes as they possibly could. I have experienced that a few times on spam messages. If you selected the exclusive filter to stop only predetermined email addresses and the spam still comes in, you may want to notify hotmail why they are showing up in that folder. They could have a possible faulty filter function on your email account.

    Mmm well been reading the different complaints on Emails and there hijackings
    First of all All of you have a filter problem ,Ether not set properly, or not blocking properly,and you are getting referred every time you ppl log on ! Arther possible thing you ad is not hidden ,or you have given it out and Arther's have pick it up ,(by scanning) Perhaps you may be playing on line games ,where its picked up there by adverts,Don't really Matter how you are leaking info out to the nett ,ether your selfs or your setups, now i am not going to give a big lecture here as there are plenty threads that deal in how to stop junk mails , Reason i put up my 2 cents Worth? i never get any !
    as i don't allow Any that i don't email to By that i Mean Receive ,advice is get your selfs a decent Email filter program ! set it to block any unknown addresses,
    Just plane disallow them ,its that easy
