As above, just file them in spam and ignore them. Everyone gets these sorts of emails from time to time (some more than others.) You'll generally notice it more on hotmail because their spam filter is pretty crap. Google's is much better - I barely have one of those messages a month (if that) with Gmail's spam filter.

Agreed.

I don't get porn ones but I do get lots of viagra ones, even on my school email which no-one has (legally any ways).

Like others have said you can just flag it as spam and be done with it. However depending on your ISP and/or email client you can block people by their domain (everything after the @).
