This depends on what mail client you are using. In Mac OS X Mail, you need to define a rule:

  1. Open up mail and go Mail -> Preferences
  2. Click on the 'Rules' tab
  3. Click 'Add Rule'
  4. Using the editor, make it so that if the email is From the spam address (Which you put in the box), that email message is deleted.
  5. Press OK. Mail may ask you if you want to apply that rule to email messages already in your mailboxes - press yes if you want them automatically deleted.
There are similar steps if you are using a different mail client - if you are, let me know and I'll try to guide you through the steps.
Hope that helps, good luck!

How to keep a check on Email Spam?


Step 1: Set up "filters" in your Gmail account to automatically delete junk mail from specific senders. While spammers tend to change their email addresses frequently, you will sometimes get repeated spam messages from the same sender. Go into your "Settings," click "Filters," and set up a filter that automatically deletes all incoming emails from the sender.

Step 2: If you are getting junk mail from the same company, but the return address keeps changing, create a filter to delete the emails by detecting certain words. For example, maybe the company is called Global Moneymaking Enterprises. Create a filter that catches all emails that contain those three words and set it to delete them automatically.

Step 3: Rather than deleting junk emails that make it into your Gmail inbox, select them and click the "Report Spam" button. This will move the message into your spam folder, but it will also give Google information to help it improve its spam filter.

Step 4: Set up a special Gmail address that you use for making purchases, signing up for newsletters, and doing other activities that require you to give out your email address. Sometimes companies will opt you into promotional offers or sell your email address to spammers. Block this mail from coming to your main Gmail account by protecting that address and only giving out your special account address.

Step 5: If you notice a lot of junk emails in your spam folder that contain certain words, set up a filter to screen out emails with those words. Terms such as Viagra are common, but spammers often change them around to defeat spam filters, However, many of these changes are used frequently. For example, many spammers use the same Vi@gara misspelling. When you notice this, block those terms and you won't even get their messages in your Gmail spam folder.

I HAVE TRIED IN VAIN TO UNSUBSCRIBE FROM MERCADOJOBS' JOB ALERTS


What email client are you using? Most online e-mail (Yahoo mail, Gmail, etc.) have a spam filter that you can declare and any future sends from that source will be sent to the garbage. In Outlook, go to Actions\Junk Email\Block\Add Sender To Blocked Sender List.
Now all email from that sender will be blocked. Outlook Express should work in the same way, but I am not sure since I do not use it. As far as removing your email address from the sender, you will have to figure it out, I can't help you with that.

If you've had an email address for more than a day, you've almost certainly come across an email address that you wish you could block.

Well, there's good news: you can block specific email addresses with most email clients. According to campaignmonitor.com, and as of January 2010, Microsoft Outlook,

Each client shared one thing in common: the ability to block email addresses, and the process is simple, too.Yahoo! Mail


Visit Yahoo.com and sign into your Yahoo! Mail account.


Click "Options" in the right corner of the screen. Select "More Options."

Select "Spam" in the left window pane.
Enter the email address of the person you wish to block under "Blocked Email Addresses." Click "Add."
Hotmail

Visit MSN.com and sign into your Hotmail account.
Click the "Options" button and select "Mail."
Choose "Junk E-mail Protection."
Find and click "Block Senders."

Type in the email address you wish to block in the provided text box.
Click "Add."
Hotmail will automatically block all future email messages from that sender.
Microsoft Outlook

Open Microsoft Outlook. Click the "Tools" menu and select "Options."
Select "Preferences" and click "Junk E-mail."
Click "Blocked Senders" and then click on the "Add" button.
Type the email address of the person or company you wish to block.

Click "OK" to confirm your decision.
