Unfortunately, once your email address is out there you will not be able to get it removed from their “list”. There is no point in replying to spam or trying to use unsubscribe button as spammer has no intention of removing you from his list and in fact, by acknowledging that you received his email you are giving him incentive to send you more mail and possibly sell your email address to other spammers. Your best defense is to get a good filtering software and filter out as much of it as you can.
Protect Your Email Address
One thing that you can do is get a second email and only give that out to people you want to receive mail from. Reserve original email for use if you need to have an email to order online or subscribe to a site. Other things you can do include:
Not answering spam emails Never have your email address visible on any web page Do not use an auto-responder when you will be away from your computer Do not pass along chain emails
