Hotmail Gets Anti-Spam Makeover

A friend of mine is despairing because his Hotmail account keeps getting a lot of spam. I suggested he just stick with his Yahoo address and junk his Hotmail address. Now we get this bit of news.

Hotmail Gets Anti-Spam Makeover -- "Hotmail's Junk Mail filter has been tweaked to let users report spam back to Microsoft to let the service automatically filter out that senders at the gateway level. The new filter means only mail from known senders and addresses within a user's contact list are displayed on the default mail page. Hotmail users, however, still have the option to view all mail via a drop-down tab."

I'm glad that Hotmail is doing this. Yahoo has a button that allows users to report to Yahoo that certain emails are spam. On the downside, you can only block a limited number of email addresses, even if you let Yahoo know you're getting spammed.
