- I too have a hotmail/MSN email. I think that most hotmail and MSN
accounts (I have both.) allow Spam but they do send it to your junk
folder if you do not have the address in your address book. I have
mine set up that way.
MSN believes in free speech and anything is fair game. I saw that
some where I do not remember where.
Now as far as the account getting out any web based email can be
hacked into and that is how your email account gets out. There are
some really good (and evil) hackers out there. Sometimes it just
happens. There people will start typing anything with the base user
name such as okiebelle. If one gets through then they keep that email
to share and use it again. I know because I had gotten one with many
varity's of okiebelle.
I have just learned to deal with it for if you have an email - spam
is a part of it.
