i have a feeling i get spam on hotmail coz msn wants me to open hotmail account regularly. what u can do is to setup hotmail to direct all junk mails to trash folder. u might miss some important mails... that ways.
I onyl use my hotmail account for junk mail... i.e. when I need to provide a valid e-mail account to subcribe to something online, but I don't want to give them my real e-mail address.I figure junk deserves junk.
I use Yahoo address guard, u can create address like email@example.com and all emails will be directed to ur basic id.if tomorrow u get too much junk on that id u can simply delete that idthat way u dont have to maintain multiple account and ur main id still stays safe.
