    My old Hotmail account, which has had a gradual tickover of spam for
    years has suddenly been getting much more, and it is not being filtered
    as junk either.

    It isn't a great hassle as I don't use the account much, but I can't
    think of any way that the address has been exposed to spammers recently
    - I just wondered if it is a general Hotmail thing?

    I'm having the same problem in spite of creating rules and modifying them as
    fast as I can. Anyone else?

    Get a refund for what you paid for the service.

    That's why I don't use them any more.
    usa.mail.com does a better job.

    I dunno about Hotmail: but I do know that my three Yahoo mail accounts,
    which have been spam free for years, are now getting spam, even though I
    never posted any address publicly.
