    I have a blog sending emails from my hotmail account.

     

    Any ideas on how to block this?

    Windows Live OneCare do not have the ability to block emails. You need to contact your mail provider's support(which is hotmail in your case) to help you out with your problem.

  • If they are sending from your account, change your account password at http://account.live.com

    Contact Windows Live Hotmail Support - https://support.live.com/eform.aspx?productKey=wlmail&ct=eformts

    If they are spoofing your address, meaning your address appears as the From line in Spam sent to you and others, it isn't sent from your account, though bounced messages will be returned to you. If this is the case, ignore the bounces as there isn't anything you can do short of getting a new email address. The spoofing should stop after a while and they use another address.
