your hotmail account has probably been hacked. I would go there and change the password and see if the spam reduces.

I suggest you change your password FREQUENTLY.

Things for you to remember in the future -
1.Stop posting your e-mail address on a public forum or website. It is estimated that 95% of all junk e-mail is caused by a person publicly disclosing his or her e-mail address.

2. Avoid: Popular newsgroups - robots often scour these lists for addresses.
Chat rooms like Yahoo Chat etc- spammers or spambots are actively mining in popular chat rooms.

3. Use spam blocking tools. Most webmail providers offer them, or you can download one.
