Where Spam Comes From

I have a spamblocker program on my computer which protects me from having to deal with a huge amount of spam. Some, though, ends up in a segregated folder as “suspect” mail and I can view it to determine if it truly is spam.

I’ve noticed a rather interesting thing about the messages which end up in that folder. Most of them, especially the ones supposedly from an individual, come from a @hotmail address. Wonder if there’s something about that address which makes it attractive — other than that it is free — to people who send such wacky messages? I don’t read them but I can tell they’re wacky by the subject lines.

What have you noticed about the spam which finds its way to your computer?
