Journal: Microsoft Hotmail's Spam Block Failured Documented.

Journal by twitter
Guy Kewney documents the sad state of spam blocking by Hotmail. The "Contact Status" is broken, mail with obvious spam keywords end up in his box, offers from known spammers come through but legitimate mail is blocked from entire domains. Undoing a domain block will cost you lots of money but may never work because M$ plays favorites with what email client is used by the sender.
