Are you 100% certain that they have not removed your address and that they are behind the mails?
If you are then I would think that the most effective deterrent would be to name & shame

They told me they removed my email address. So I dont know if they have or not, am just sick of the emails.

If they continue then I will name & shame them, and then people can make sure they never give there email address to this person.

I may get banned for nameing, so I shall wait for Mark to come along and tell me, weather I can or not.

Sounds like it could be a virus or spam then and the person is not actually sending them at all

I had a similar thing a couple of weeks ago except I was the culprit. I was (unknowingly)sending spam out ot people. When I looked into it, it wasn't my Outlook account that was being spammed but the Yahoo webmail contact list. I keep some addresses in there for use when I'm not on my laptop. It sounds like this could be similar. If the person is using outlook then they need to clear out the contents of their web mail contacts - that seems to have have stopped mine
