My Hotmail account's been hacked. So I guess all my contacts have got one of those. All of my MSN contacts were deleted too. Don't worry about it. I've set up a new account now.

Just further to this... anyone who had me added to their email contacts or Messenger contacts, please add me again (my new address is in my profile) as I've lost every contact I had from my old account - thanks!

@Graham
You should periodically export your contacts from MSN, I have had to do this because of the new MSN before the bug was fixed.

I only do this once in a blue moon, but I suppose it depends on how many contacts you add per month, which will depend on the frequency of exportin them.
