"Everyone" tells me they have a hotmail account and get loads of spam to it.
They always tell me that they didn't give the email address out to anyone, yet they get upwards of 20 spams a day to the account. They complain about how the junk filters don't work, and how when they go away it won't receive their legitimate email due to inbox size restrictions.
All my efforts at empirically testing this have so far failed. Even when I opt-in to the hotmail white pages. I just get no spam. The account sits there receiving nothing.
Am I doing something wrong? Is there really no mole inside hotmail selling email addresses? Or have these peoplebeen duped into selecting multiple "subscription" services without their knowing?... Inquiring minds want to know.
