Thank you. So the bottom line is that after designating any spam as junk 
mail (or putting that spam into the junk mail folder), I can immediately 
delete it and Hotmail got the message. Personally I don't think any of this 
works as the senders have a way of changing their identities faster than I 
can designate their mails as junk. --- Harold
