Spam and business

Every morning, I go to the webmail of my ISP to clean up some 50-100 spam emails.
I thought spam would die down as nobody reacts to this kind of publicity. It seems to be a nuissance I will just have to learn how to live with. Fortunately some virusses like the "latest microsoft patch" and please sent all your paypaldata to the following link (fake paypal-messages) are easy to recognise. But I wonder to what extend it hurts (your business)?

I use one address whenever asked to submit e-mail info to anyone on the web, for whatever reason, no matter how respectable the company. It also contains different registration data.
My business and private correspondence is done through another address.
But still I wonder - 50 pieces of spam! The most I ever got was ca. 10 (on my "public address").
Maybe you should consider changing your current address to something very similar and gradually phase the old one out.

The best spam tool I am aware of is Mailwasher (www.firetrust.com).
Bounce them back before they reach your mail software.
