    Hello,

    If you are not happy with the spam filtering provided by Hotmail you have the option to use a pop3 connection from a mail program on your computer to read your email and some PC based spam filtering software if you want to try and save the account.

    An alternate option is to create a Gmail account and do the same thing, have Gmail use pop3 to check your hotmail account and use Gmail's spam filtering to reduce the spam hitting our inbox.
