I use Earthlink, and they have a component called Spaminator. I'm 
also trying out V-com's mailwasher. I think many of these 
programs will block this kind of email from coming to you. You 
might also see if your server has a spam filter component. I know 
Yahoo and Earthlink do. You can try to find a common word that is 
unique to these emails, and then have the email re-routed to a 
folder where you can double check if you really want to delete 
it. If your email at the server end is filling up, you need to 
catch it there. Ask your ISP what they recommend. -- d
