    I have hotmail account for close to 3 years now, the problem that's I'm facing now is that blocking unwated email. It wasn't a problem initially coz hotmail allows us to block it. However, I cannot do that any more coz the blocking lists are full. max allowed is 200.

    Is there any advise? I hate receiving mails like promotional stuffs, university diploma for cheap, XXX, lucky winner etc.

    My friend told me the best alternative is to create a new account. I hope this is not true...

    Use Hotmails bulk mail option, that should limit your pain ! that list is purged 15 days from message sent, so they drop off accordingly. as for your problem with junk mail, I reccomend getting a e-mail from a server who offers such free I/E yahoo or excite and using that for contact or update info, thus keeping your main account spam free ( mostly)god luck ! ...Rhett

    Look around and you will find many free email accounts availabe to you. Use one as your primary and when you log to a site that you MIGHT want to download, so it with your secondary email account.

    This will keep the SPAM in the site you only use for downloads.
