**sigh** Then just delete it, you don't have to open it.
If it makes it into your in-box, mark it as spam...

In my experience the volume of spam seems to be directly related to the size of the provider?
Yahoo and Hotmail certainly suffer very badly, and AOL certainly used to.
I get very little spam these days, which is probably as well because I swear that if I had my wotsit lengthened one more time I would probably trip over and break my neck
EDIT: You might like to look at http://www.fepg.net/ They give links to around 1500 e-mail providers in about 85 countries.
If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

PostMaster are pretty viligant against spammers, and even took a couple of companies to court recently because they sent UCE to people with @postmaster.co.uk addresses. They also subscribe to a number of mail blacklists and allow you to block single addresses or entire domains (block @hotmail.com, @msn.com and @yahoo.com and you should see a dramatic fall in spam!).

If you really don't want spam, you can get one of the challenge/response systems like Mailblocks (not an endorsement, I use client-side bayesian filtering). Whenever someone new sends you mail, they send a message back asking them to confirm that they are a person. If they confirm, they are whitelistsed. Otherwise, the service does not deliver their mail.
* There aren't, AFAIK, any free services that offer this.
* People while about having to do all this stuff to send you mail
* Supposedly zero spam
