Yes, yahoo and hotmail are the playgrounds of spammers, and many anonymous  
people who like to abuse the Internet.  No surprize there.

My ISP provides email scanning for virus and spam, and it labels all  
hotmail account email as potential spam.

If I had the "flush spam" feature engaged I would never see mail from  
hotmail accounts.  As it stands, I only earmark spam with a tag.  The tag  
allows me to dump it into a secondary "inbox" of low priority.
