I feel offended.
I clicked on the stop spam button but it did not help at all!
Anyone has some good advice (no, no not about the product) to stop this once and for all.

Hi, Elso

Try to block the sender. Contact your ISP.
Last week I contacted my ISP. Don't know if they did something but it stopped the next day.

Elso,

As a first rule, never reply to those messages asking them to stop e-mailing you. What you are doing is telling them that the address is active and somebody is looking at messages. This will most likely increase the spam.
You did not mention what mail client you use, but most of them have filters that can be applied even before the message is retrieved from the server. In Outlook Express for example, you can go to tools/Message Rules/Mail. Other mail clients have similar features.
Here is an example for Outlook Express:
Click on New and create a filter by checking the appropriate boxes. Give it a meaningful name and save it.

Bouncing e-mail is quit efficeint in my experience.

You must found if your e-mail program can do it. What it does is just bounce the message back to the sender and it look like if your e-mail adress don't exist.

The Unix program Mail.app which is bundled with Mac OS X has this function and is effective in many cases.

BTW: I have the same problem with Viagra....

Both, but it only means that this sort of spam doesn't come without a reason.

A caution! Beware all those ads for products promising to make your whatsis longer. I found out the hard way (bad pun) that the effects of these devices and pills are additive. Now, after using ten different products, each promising an extra 3 to 6 inches, I keep tripping over that thing. Very, very inconvenient.

Fortunately, I'll be able to afford a surgical repair, just as soon as all that Nigerian money shows up in my bank account.

You are right! In my hotmail account, before setting up the "exclusive" filter, I used to get messages inviting me to enhance different parts of my anatomy. Some of them did not apply to my gender, of course.
