new Microsoft spam support service, Office Live

Spam came through a botnet host on, advertising It's hosted on Microsoft's Office Live "cloud" service. I reported it to and the report was automatically rejected, needs a Hotmail domain. I to get it past the broken robot.

I got a personally worded response from MSFT's abuse staff. They refuse to do anything about the spamvertised web site on their server. I should "unsubscribe" from its "newsletter."

Now it's official. Microsoft lets you advertise your Office Live web site in spam. Kind of like Yahoo did when they first started their small business hosting service 15 years ago.

Perhaps I should list Windows Live's known "free email for Nigerian widows and oil ministers" domains here.
