Which email manager are you using? Mozilla Thunderbird has quite a good anti-spam system which "learns". It's worth a try. You can set up your own filters if you are using Outlook or Outlook Express - than reduces a lot of the rubbish. The only other thing is to be careful to whom you give your address. You could open another account with say Hotmail or Yahoo or the like and keep that one strictly private and for personal use. They your other stuff would gradually die off but you would have to check it of course. Good luck.
