The scams you get will be from different addresses each time so, despite marking them, they will continue unfortunately.

Just delete them, it is not too arduous a task.

"How do I stop them please."

Anyone who can do that on a permanent basis will be able to become a millionaire from selling it!

Shouldn't need saying, but don't even open them.

It lets the spammer know it's a "live" e-mail address, which they then sell on to other spammers.

In Outlook Express, you can click on message without opening it as morddwyd says, then block sender. It may stop repeat sendings.
