I am sick of porn advertising messages in my hotmail.

I must have upset some boyfriend that knew my hotmail address and I am inundated now with porn advertising. I am a mom and sometimes I sign in with my daughter. Those messages I never asked for and they keep on coming, the titles are very suggestive and I am embarassed in front of my daughter. Today I got one that said on the subject line "Young teens playing with animals"...what the hell? I never open them, I just wish we would have an option to do something about it. It must be some legal action also. Anyway, any ideas would be appreciated. I am so busy and tired and if I made the time to post in this forum, I know I am at the end of my patience with this problem. Thank you!

Hello,

This may not be the answer that you are looking for, but Hotmail is probably the worst of Gmail, Hotmail, and Yahoo at filtering spam. If you do not want to receive the porn spams and want to continue using a free email account I recommend that you create a Gmail account.

Turn off your images so that they won't be displayed. Also make sure you are constantly sorting your email into the spam or junk boxes so that your provider begins to learn what is what.

This should be a start.

Thank you! It has been better lately, but right when I think I have a clean email...I get another sick title. I do put them in Phishing or Junk, but they always come with a new email address from hotmail or whatever, not from a website.
I am even getting some weird haikus lately, I must have really upset some psycho, I think I know who it is...lol...
Thank you.
