Hotmail problem?

that is exactly what is happening.

i've confirmed over here that an empty (or short message) sent from hotmail
has high counts. The exact count depends on the random ad that hotmail
appends to the message. An empty message that I just sent received body:142,
fuz1:615, fuz2:1075.

any thoughts on workarounds?

My guess is that people are hitting "send" with empty message bodies,
leaving the hotmail ad as the only thing sent.
