I got this while googling it from a blog:
To remove an address from your Windows Live Hotmail Safe List:
•Select Options | More Options... from the Windows Live Hotmail toolbar (or just Options if you use Windows Live Hotmail classic).
•Follow the Safe and blocked senders link under Junk e-mail.
•Click Safe senders.
•Highlight the email address or domain you want to remove under Safe senders and domains:.
•Click << Remove from list.

Since addresses found in your Hotmail Contacts are automatically whitelisted as well, make sure addresses you have removed from the Safe List are not found there either.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

Thanks! I will try it. You mentioned "whitelisted" contacts. I am not familiar with that,... can you elaborate?

"whitelisted" contacts are regarded as safe. just a term. instead of blacklisted
