Depends upon how you have e-mail set up
I get some spam and "Delete and Block"
I have all of Africa blocked. If spam is coming from the same place then block it.

I get SPAM from Eastern European countries but I get real e-mails too so I can't block an entire country there.

I'd have to see what you are getting and what e-mail server.
"Delete and Block".

According to the http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/lofiversion/index.php/t10167.html

nothing really `happens` to the spamee`s. Not like they get a written warning or anything. No Obviously! b/c I get more ads for viagra??????? on one of my old addys. They all go directly to Spam!
Just been curious .............

I have block on a couple. Yahoo! -ing it for all these years I can do that. An entire country? Not necessary at this writing. bounce Thank you !!!

In "rare" cases, spammers get legal action taken against them but it usually involves sending malware out to recruit a set of "Bot computers" that send more spam.

Safe e-mail practices are the first line of defense!
(Don't open attachments from unknown users etc.)
