So i got a 419 scam email from a live.co.uk address and being a good citizen :P , i decide to report it so that the email account shuts off. On searching through the internet i find that abuse has to be reported to abuse@passport dot com , anyway my email is bounced back.

Microsoft is just helping these scammers if they abuse reporting tools are rejecting emails.I wonder how many people will be scammed just because Microsoft chose not to act responsibly.

    I agree, I’ve not found a reliable way to report abuse of their @live accounts so scammers continue to use them.

    Where I work we get lots of phishing e-mails with replies that go back to @live.com accounts which we’d like shut down if we could report them so action could be taken.

    It probably won’t get fixed unless lawyers are involved but we can hope.
