Hotmail driving me crazy....

Hello, is anyone at hotmail home? Because I blocked a certain address and I keep getting email from it?

It's driving me crazy. Someone is sending email to an address that used to be used by one of the members of my "myfamily.com" site and no matter what I do I keep getting the shit. I'll be really pissed if I have to change my email address.

    A couple of months back I had to switch from hotmail to yahoo, because I kept having trouble sending emails. I don't know what the trouble was but it was driving me crazy. I am much happier with yahoo.--ST

  2. Jessica, you won't have to change addresses. Let me know if you need me to send you step by step instructions.

  3. I blocked that email addy from coming to me. What else can I do? I still keep getting it. Also, it's going to my work mail too, now how on earth did that happen? I tried reporting it to myfamily.com but nobody gives a crap. On the same day I received identical emails to my home and work which are completely different addys and different domains, but it was from the same person to "jem1958@myfamily.com" and I have a member on my family.com site, a relative who used to have that addy. She's not the one spamming, but I bet she might be getting it too. It's hell!!!

  4. OK Jessica, got home very late. Half-hour ago. I get up at 4.30a. I will write down the step by step instructions or copy and paste when I awake and will email you.

  5. Here you go. I didn't see an email in your profile, so I hope this is OK.

    Block messages from specific senders
    To reduce unwanted e-mail, you can block messages from specific e-mail addresses or from entire domains (a domain is the part of an e-mail address that follows the @ sign). Blocked messages never reach your account.
    -----------------------------------

    Click Options.
    On the left side of the page, click Mail.
    Click Junk E-mail Protection, and then Block Senders to show your Block Sender List.
    Enter an e-mail address or domain, and then click Add.
    Use the Add and Remove buttons to change the list.
    Notes

    You cannot block messages from the following:
    MSN Hotmail (hotmail.com)
    MSN (msn.com)
    Your MSN Personal Address
    Blocking a sender is very effective against e-mail from a particular address or domain, but it cannot block messages from addresses or domains that have never sent you messages. For more information, see Stop receiving junk e-mail (spam).
    To remove an address or a domain from the Block Sender list (or unblock it), select the item, and then click Remove.
