What the hell is wrong with my Hotmail?

I have these spam messages that, instead of deleting, are multiplying! I access my Hotmail through both the web client and Microsoft Outlook XP, and *nothing* will delete them. I have about *six* duplicates of four e-mails each, and, while I can delete other e-mails, I can't delete these!

God, what the ****ing hell is wrong with this? :mad: :mad: :mad:

Oop...sorry for not including it in the original post :eek:

Click on the account itself (the top-level folder in the "Folders" menu), and over on the right you should see two buttons, "Synchronize Account" and "Settings". Under settings you should be able to set it not to synchronize.

Umm...are you sure that this is Microsoft Outlook 2002 and not another version? I'm not talking about Outlook Express.

I can't seem to find any of this. :p

Oh oh...I dunno about that, but I can find out. I got Outlook XP, so I'll look and see how to do it there.

If you find out before me, let me know.

Okay...it was probably the Hotmail servers, nothing on my end. If I remember right, M$ servers tend to have problems regarding deletion, etc. I once had an FTP issue with a server operated using Windows 2000 Server, and I was told that they just need to be rebooted often. :p I'm guessing that that was what happened with the Hotmail server it was sitting on.

But, thankfully, that spam is gone.
