Anyone still have an old Hotmail account?

It's been getting spammed to death in the past month or so, as I'm told all of them are. It's as if little is getting steered to the Spam folder and trying to write rules sucks. May have to cut it loose after 21 years lol. Anyone else?

I have a Yahoo account and experience the same thing. A month or so ago started getting a huge amount of spam. I don't. Think it is the provider so much as the spammers finding new ways to bother us.
@bowman81 Same. Google just has the best filters. I had to switch all my paid accounts to Google just to be safe. I use yahoo for stuff like SW lol

@Jenny1234 It appears to be all over. I thought that I had given my email to the wrong shady vendor, who then sold it everywhere, but apparently not.
I do. It’s my default whenever I’m asked for a email address for verification…
I never open it. It’s spam city
I had one in like 2011 and I totally forgot my username and password so it's gone forever. I may be able to extract it from my old EP messages which I have backed up. Besides that I been using yahoo mail since 2008 and yea it isn't exactly as secure as Google when it comes to spam. Google has the best spam filters ever. I actually changed all my paid services from Yahoo to Gmail just to be safe.
Yep but don't have much problem with that

I did used to have an Excite email, but then they took away their email completely 2 years ago. was around the same time as Yahoo, but I don't think it was that well off. I think the website is still around.

That's still a thing? I looked it up and apparently it evolved into outlook some years ago

@uncalled4 youre being a damn hoarder, theres no way youre using all of that crap
uncalled4 · 56-60, M
@MartinTheFirst It's true!

I just tried setting it to "Only trust messages from my Safe Senders list" or some such. We'll see.
travelguy01 · 41-45, M
Yes. I rarely ever check it.
Well, it's not spam city, but it gets enough spam that goes right to spam... except for a few that make no sense how they end up in the "in" box instead of spam. lol
I still like it better than Yahoo Yapoo!
If I do, I haven't checked it in 20 years.
SatanBurger · 36-40, F
@LordShadowfire Haha I wonder how many emails you have.
@SatanBurger I will never know, but it's probably in the millions.
