Hotmail Being Attacked By Large Spam

About a month ago, I noticed that I was starting to receive very large spam messages of more than 130K each in my Hotmail account. Although the spam filter was picking them up, the messages were counted against my disk quota (2mb), effectively rendering my account unusable within 24 hours.

I attempted to report this problem to Hotmail tech support, but only got bot replies saying they were too busy to reply right now. Pop quiz. When can you tell a company has lost the plot?

Thank goodness for Gmail.
