I use Thunderbird & I download the mail onto my local machine using POP3. Normal mails are moved to "Deleted" folder on Hotmail after I have downloaded them. I have been facing this problem from some time now. I receive junk messages supposedly from Microsoft asking me to confirm my account or click the url to authenticate myself. Obviously all these are junk & phishing mails. When I download them, these mails disappears from Hotmail account altogether. Can't find them in any of the folders so it's not possible for me to block them or mark them as Junk. Is it possible to send such kind of mails ? If yes, how ?
