large spam messages disable Hotmail accounts

I've noted that a large spam message exceeding
the available space left on hotmail blocks all following emails
even if they come from "trusted" sources(in address book)

This problem would affect any webbased email, Hotmail in
particular, since Hotmail is one of the smallest with 2 MB.

The fix would be to force deletion of messages in "Trash Can"
and allow only messages from "trusted" sources ....
Filtering the size of spam messages would also help, allowing to set the
size in kb. So certain messages containing attachments would be rejected
immediately ....
