Default Email bomb

I have been receiving annoying email messages from some source. Like 4 messages in one minute. I keep clicking on report spam button, though still I receive. In one day it is like 300-400 emails I get in my inbox.
By the way I am using Gmail.

Please help, it is really starting to get on my nerves.

if it's the same address just setup a rule on your account and set all emails from that address to be deleted before they hit your inbox.

Desktop: Dell Dimension E510, 2.5GB RAM, Intel P4 3.0GHZ, 250GB HDD, Windows Vista Premium. Might not be the best, but the old girl is still running good.

Very easy. Post the email headers. Also, copy the email headers to www.spamcop.com to 'analyze' it. From their you can report it

Spamfighter helped me to solve similar problem. If creating rule to delete these spam e-mails won't help I really suggest to use what blackjack offered.
