How do I stop getting 300+ spam emails/day including {removed email address}
Latest post: Sampath, Thursday, June 30, 2011 10:27 AM
I have reported many junk emails to {removed email address} and every single time I get a reply which says it has nothing to do with Microsoft and I should send the email to the domain.  However, the domain addresses I see are all fictitious.  For example, Microsoft told me that junk email (Rolex watches) from {removed email address} was a forged header and I should report it to the abuse team of the domain.  I asked them to tell me what the real domain is so I could send it to the correct abuse site.  I got a nonsensical reply telling me how to unsubscribe from an MSN newsletter!  Most of the emails are from info@"garbage" where garbage is some random verbiage.  The form letter responses from Microsoft on this issue are less than helpful.

I was told I was not getting spam from MSN.  The email I referred to came from Rolex.com using my id before the @ sign and mail.msn.com after the @ sign.  ({removed email address}).  MSN said this was a forged header.
However virtually all of the junk indicates a totally fictitious address and I don't understand how I can determine the real sender and the real domain of any of these emails.  In any event it would seem that Microsoft could track down the computer that is sending out 300+ fictitious emails per day to a single email account.  How can I get them to help me?
