I get about the same amount on my hotmail account. I've got it set to exclusive filtering now. Also my blocked email list is full.

Exclusive filtering is good once you have all the places you regularly get email from added to your safe list. But you still have to trawl through the junk mail folder once in a while to find real emails that get put there mistakenly by hotmail.

I just block everyone that isn't on my address list works fine for me

It will for a while but that blocked list eventually fills up.

woops, heh, I mean I only accept mail from people on my address list, everything else is just delivered to junk mail. I don't bother blocking specific addresses anymore, too much work, its that exclusive thing or something, its been workin' great for me

Are you using your hotmail account as your primary Outlook Express or Outlook account? If so, dont, most of your spam is comming from your cookies, or use something like adaware daily. I only use my hotmail account via the web, and I dont get any spam
