Are you using Thunderbird or webmail through Firefox (both Mozilla)? Or do you have another e-mail client. You probably need to put this sender on your blocked list.

You could log on to your mail server and mark the emails as Spam or in Thunderbird put sender on Blacklist

Message Filters has option to mark mail as "Junk" http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=148038

Hi, thanks to all for your replies. I am going to try woolwells suggestion first but I won`t know for a while if the spam has stopped. Will feed back either way. Ray

lotvic's final link is probably easier.

Unless you have a massive contact list, the option I use is create filters for the people I want to recieve emails from and leave the rest in the inbox.

That way you can straight to the email you want, have a quick look at the inbox in case anything interesting has turned up .Move to a folder called (e.g. To be checked) and delete the rest
