    Double check that your "junk mail" setting is set to "HIGH". I have hotmail and rarely get hit. I used to when I had it set to low or moderate.

    the 400 emails I got was in about 25 minutes last night, the MSN email popup thing had 6 of them on the screen at a time, pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    Blocked the two address and no more emails....
    Had some weird writing in the title and subject, one said it was from a hotmail account the other was puntip.com.

    These emails where in addition to the 30 or so junk emails a day /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    I would say someone that has my email address in their outlook setup got a virus or something because I have a second email account I dont give out (unless I send someone pictures) and it got hit 354 times this morning /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif
