One mistake you are making is posting your email address in an open forum - this will attract spammers like flies to honey.

Make sure the message is selected, click the three little dots in the top-right corner then click on "Mark as Spam".

Before you do that though, check a few of the messages from spammer Audley and see if the sender's address is always the same. If it isn't then you may find that subsequent messages from Audley still arrive in your Inbox after marking as spam. It's worth trying once though. They'll stop coming in eventually.

By the way, Fruity's advice is for Windows Mail for Windows Vista so those instructions are unlikely to help ;)
