I can’t tell you how many times I have marked this type of email hitting my inbox since last year as junk:
“Window Live Hotmail! Warning! Verify Your Account Now To Avoid Closure”
I have marked it time and time again, yet I still see it appearing in my inbox, the Junk Filter heuristics needs to block this one seriously.
The email address alone should be the giveaway.
Here is Microsoft’s policy on disabling Hotmail accounts:
“If your account stays ‘inactive’ for over a period of 30 days, it will be permanently deleted. This delay is necessary to discourage users from engaging in fraudulent activity. Additionally, due to the limited number of names available, we may allow other users to sign up for and use your current e-mail name after your account has been permanently deleted.”
But, some thing needs to be done about this junk mail that’s been making the rounds and won’t go away no matter how many times it gets flagged as junk.
