Hi John R,
As many others have suggested you can use filters to send the emails straight to the spam folder. If your email account is with one of the big boys like Google, Yahoo or Microsoft it is relatively easy to set up their spam filters to capture these emails and each service provider has video showing you how to do this or you can find a video on YouTube.
If you are using an email client like Outlook or Thunderbird, like Grady, and logging in to your POP3 account you can use the email client to set filters and direct it straight to the spam or deleted folders. I use Avast! Internet Security which captures spam for me based on a few rules; once I have seen the spam emails a few times I report them to my ISP and they block them for me so that they are never downloaded to my computer.
A final note, if the email has an un-subscibe button, see who is is providing the AutoResponder service and report them. I know that if AWeber, GetResponse or i-Contact get a spam complaint they ban the account. If you report the sender to the AutoResponder service provider and you still get emails; report them to your ISP and they'll deal with it for you.
