Anyone received emails from this user? He's been spamming me every 5 minutes for an entire 6 months! I tried mark as spam but it didn't appear to be marked as. It says it's an automatically generated mail.

I had enough, it's spamming my inbox and it's really pissing me off... Anyone got any suggestions?

wats the content of the email?

you might also be infected with virus... as in, your email account was used to sent out spam email automatically and some recipients might no longer use the account or mailbox full then got bounce back hence u receive this postmaster reply from hotmail.

I always get this from my friend.


do a virus scan (make sure your anti virus software is updated!) then change your hotmail password. You can only change your hotmail password after you scan your pc/laptop else no use.

It's something similar to that. Like Sent message Failure or something. And there is one time that my account got suspended because they thought i was spamming..

i usually get sent stuff by my close friends and god-sister that start with "hey xxx@xxxx.com long time no see" or stuff like that that's superbly obvious it's fake.

@TS: be more discerning

postmaster is like a postman in real life. when you send an email to someone and that email cannot be delivered, postmaster will auto reply you that the address is wrong, mailbox is full or whatever reasons.

it is automated.

Postmaster is just like a delivery report to you.

Most likely what's happening is someone/something is using your account to mass send your contacts every now and then. Those emails not in used anymore bounce back to you from postermaster.

I get that before, change pwd problem solved.
