Preventing spam emails

Yesterday I woke up to 240 spam emails on my Optusnet account.
I have been receiving anywhere between 20 and 40 spam emails per day for the last two months or so.
How do I prevent this?
Possibly a dumb question but is my only solution to change my email address?

I use delete continuously Its a hassle changing your email address, and it may happen again, depending on who is selling your information to what other organisations.
Also talk to Optus, they might be able to block specific originating addresses.
I find nowadays that every shop I buy from continuously bombards me with emails, so again I delete them unless they include free offers.
It s so bad that I insist on paper bills because I am worried that email bills would just get lost in amongst the crap.
