This has been a source of frustration for some time, but I've had no success in resolving it; hoping mefites might have some suggestions. I've been getting spam messages in my hotmail inbox for months now. They are offers for everything you'd expect. Free credit scores, insurance, diabetes supplies, free pizza, new iphones, you name it. They all have addresses that follow a similar format:
I just flag them as spam but Hotmail seems powerless to stop them and the URLs are always different. It's curious that they all have an "a" after the @; maybe this helps them make it to my inbox? Wondering if maybe I could just set up a filter where any sender that follows the ...@a.xxx.com format is sent to trash. Not a life threatening problem, just any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!
