Thanks -that’s helpful - how did they get my email?  This is my first breach which is very annoying. What’s the advice in preventing more emails?

Hello

Email addresses can be gathered from lots of locations if you use the email address to sign up to something then it could come from there, I get very few spam email on my VM email addresses as I don't use it for anything, but on my yahoo get quite a few.

If you mark the email as spam then it will go to your spam folder, and will remember that.

Regards Mike

Actually that is a genuine VM email.  They are running a weekly promotion ' Sharing Sundays' and the email you describe is this week's offering.
