Nah, they usually don't care where are you from, I think, I got some from Africa last year. I even replied on it, cause it didn't look like spam actually. It said that that person saw me on some forum and blah blah... and I said okay, and then next email already talked about a money transfer. :tongueout:

I don't have to read my spam mail, and this is why.

My inbox after one day of not emptying the Spam folder:

Well yeah to get that in a day is insane. You are very unlucky to have that happen to you. Even my main email address that i use everywhere doestn get that amount in 2 months let alone a day. Just scary.
 
#15

Anyways Guru things maybe looking up for you, a spammer got convicted and is going to jail for nine years so maybe your inbox will lose one or two spam messages :smile:

That's not how it works.

Hotmail guesses whether a message is spam or not based on the content, the sender, the subject, the recipients, the IP address, the time, the size, the wording, and a million other things.

Sometimes it guesses wrong though, and that's just the way it is.
