I'm getting a lot of un-solicited email from these people, does anyone know if this company are professional spammers? No 2 emails are the same and some look like they are "normal" emails, listing them as "Spam" seems not to help either.

the recipient of spoofed emails. The owner of the domain you mention is certainly not a 'professional spammer'.

It might be an idea to investigate more thoroughly before posting such a thread in future, especially when you name the domain in question - the owner will probably know nothing about it. One look at the domain in question is enough to tell you that it's extremely unlikely to be spamming you. If someone is spoofing the address there's very little you (or anyone else) can do about it. In time it will die down - many of us have suffered in a similar way.

Assuming there's no 'remove me from your mailing list' option on their e-mails, use click here to filter out spam.

This is the domain in question click here

Very professional - NOT.

asking me to remove your thread. It's a bit late for that now, but I notice you say you're planning to take up the matter with your ISP.

I doubt there's much they can do - this kind of thing is happening millions of times a day - but it's worth a try.

It's a .me domain so it is a personal site; there is no reason to expect it to look professional.

Thanks for that.

I must admit that I had no idea what a .me domain was!
