Thanks for that.

BLACKLISTING & DISCARDING OF SPAM EMAILS

To reduce the spam I will set some email filters to get "RID" of certain regular spam emails with  fixed sender addresses that I do not want, using the filter action DISCARD. This will REDUCE the quantity of spam getting through. The other alternative is to "Blacklist" the unwanted email sender in  the email options, and it will automatically go to spam.

I will try both methods, I have used the blacklist before, but it has a limit on the number of email addresses it can blacklist.

There are many paid for hosted services such as "SPAM DOCTOR" which businesses can use and claim to block 99.9% of spam and virus thus providing good protection, but the free email services do have some basic protections.
