Anyone else hit tonight

I just opened up my hotmail account and found nearly 5000 (Five thousand) e-mails all from the same [email protected] account advertising the Mad Men nomination for an Emmy award. I've let Microsoft know that their filters didn't pick this up but I'm wondering if anyone else has been hit. No great harm done but deleting this amount of junk takes longer than the 3 minutes it seemed to take to send.

The most spam I've ever received was 600 in the space of a few hours.I traced the "sourse" to a company in the USA so sent them an email asking them to desist sending the emails,they replied "its not one of ours" I'm presently struggling with deciding if I wish to continue with my hotmail account as I'm almost daily having to verify my account as microsoft suspend it as a source of spam,and the verification page doesn't display correctly on this PC so I have to use a 2nd PC to continue using hotmail.
