One of my email addresses is being targetted by spam email many times a day.  "Avast Mail shield has detected a threat".  I'm on an iMac OSX 10.7.5 and using Mac Mail. Each spam email has a different originating IP address, but all of them have a zipped trojan.  The infection is Win32:Crypt-PWV[Trj].  I'd love to know how to stop this c**p being sent to this particular email address - it's '' where random name can be anything from root to accounts to eric, etc.  This is the latest originator: from [] (port=35381

How do I stop this please?

Try to block the sender in Apple Mail. Reply if it helps or doesn't help.
