    okay, i've just checked my hotmail account and i have a returned message...."System Administrator....Undeliverable...."

    it's some kind of spam get rich quick thing that has been sent back to me, although i obviously didnt send it in the first place.
    i've checked the senders address and it's identical to mine's so i'm thinking is it just a balls up could someone else be using my details/account ??

    any help with this much appreciated

    Someone may have used an anonymous mail sender and used your e-mail as the sender

    IMHO Hotmail is utter undiluted cack. You should go with a POP3 account or something more secure. I can't suggest anything though because I use POP3.

    I 'have' to use hotmail, my isp doesnt give me any pop3, i like the feature within messenger, in that a little pop up appears when you get a message, thats my main reason for using it, just set up your spam filters and overlook whats obviously dribble

    I have Webmail with Earthlink, but that's sacred. I don't give that to ANYONE. People will just sign me up for those damed e-cards or daily jokes. That's where spam comes from. Hotmail is good enough for everyday use. The spam filter is good, but not great. You can't complain for something that's free. It's either that or yahoo. I think we all know what's their situation with spam.
