Spam filters do a lot of that but, unfortunately in our industry, there is far more spam than most people receive in their inboxes!

You'll be able to retire from the industry if you come up with that, Caroline!

There are many that I've opted out from manually.  For a while I received a lot from several local agents and offices as well.  Most use either Constant Contact or MailChimp which EXPRESSLY FORBID the use of purchased, borrowed, stolen, downloaded, etc. mailing lists.  I've reported all that came my way and I'm pretty sure most of those accounts (even ones for large companies) have either been shut down or at least severely limited.  Bonus is, I no longer get those spam emails!

I can not imagine a email program that does not provide "Always place email from this sender in the JUNK/Trash folder' with a single click by the flag pull-down.

The again, you can save the effort by 'upping' the security threshold to allow only those whose address appears in your mail list. If you receive leads at this address, the outcome could prove catastrophic.
