It looks like ...from a google search... if you get one of these....

In Outlook Express, you can create a new message and drag and drop the phishing email into the new message. Address the message to phishing-report@us-cert.gov and send it.

I tried to send a report to Yahoo but not having the actual email and only using what was sent to me I don't know if I sent enough information and the form I was presented didn't allow for explanation. As to the hotmail it would seem that the person getting the email would have to use the method stated above.

In the long run I have a feeling any phishing source would have multiple access channels available so stopping one would not of itself offer much chance of ultimately ending it for as long as it wants to run. But... we will see. I'm checking with my website expert.

Ok... I got one today. I sent it on to the above phishing reporting site. When I got it, it was already marked by my email as spam.
