    I have a hotmail account added to my phone as well as others but overnight, the amount of spam mail I've got coming through has shot up. I am trying to cut down the uses for this hotmail account so I can get rid of it so I don't usually receive much mail through it. This morning I had over 50 spam emails though.

    Anyone know of any change that may have caused this or any setting that I can switch to stop?

    Easiest solution probably is to just delete the mailbox but wanted to make sure there wasn't any security issue that ay have caused this.

    This is weird as this has happened to me too, started around 8:30pm last night and this morning had over 60 spam messages in my Hotmail account, usually I get around 5 per week. seems to have stopped at the moment but will keep an eye on it, wonder if Microsoft had an issue.....
