    Question Spam question - need advice

    Hi all,

    Sorry if this is in the wrong section I wasn't sure.

    I have an hotmail account (used via outlook.com) and from around Xmas '14 I've had a sudden increase in spam emails. I've tried to block them but the sender seems to keep changing his sender address and the content of each email slightly and they still appear.

    Any advice how to stop this sender? Does anyone know if I can request an ip block of the sender? Maybe a website where I can report these types of emails?

    I did try the Ms community but didnt have much luck.

    Many Thanks

    Hi Donna thanks for the reply, this still sends emails to my junk folder unfortunately like before. I was trying to stop this person sending to me all together. Can you block an ip like a sender address do you know?

    You're welcome Sunhawk.

    I am not sure if this will eliminate the issue or not, but it's worth a try:
