I just started receiving spam texts from hotmail accounts. How can I block, stop and delete these? I have an iPhone 4s.

Thanks.

Are they text messages? Or are they emails?

If they're emails, Koodo has no control over the spam that's coming to your phone. That would be a Microsoft issue(as Hotmail is owned by Microsoft).

If they're coming in as Text Messages, and if you have iOS 7 or higher installed on your iPhone, you can add these emails as contacts into your device and then;

Go to Settings > Messages > Blocked > Add new > and then add the contacts that those emails are saved in. This will block the text messages from coming in to your phone.

Also just to add once the contact is added to the blocked list you can delete it afterwards. You wouldn't want a bunch of random people in your contacts list. :P
