Greetings lcalanche !

Look at the header and check what ISP the sender is sending from.

Learn to read full headers

You may not know who the exact sender is since header identify only the sending ISP.  Report the problem to Hotmail Support or whoever the real ISP is.  Most ISPs do not tolerate hateful mail.

Best wishes, war1

If your email client is Outlook, all you got to do is right-click  the offending email - select Options - read the contents in Internet Headers. You'll have the email address from where it originated. You could also report it, as War1 suggests, to Hotmail support. But, if it's not SPAM then I don't see how they can help you. Depends, maybe there can, maybe they can't. As an option you could just block that email address from your account & there on that address will be as good as dead to you.

I was able to read the headers, I know what ISP was used, altough I still need to ask the ISP for help.  I hope they can help me,  or as saroshjmist says, just block ti.  Thanks a lot.  Im gonna close the question now, as it can´t go much further and it´s clear.
