Help with E-mail Junk

Hi lads and lassies,
I am sure there are many out there that can help me with a frustrating issue that really pisses me off.
For several months now i have been receiving junk e-mails advertising something with a casino header.
I have never opened them but on certain days i can get up to 15 of them and they just do not stop coming.
They will come from a name but the e-mail addy is completely different and also most of the time spelling is crap.
Two examples today.
From Aughusto Zhixn Subject Cassino Oniline Win 10,000 from an e-mail addy dolcedanae@excite.ie

From Ethan Vijay Casnio onl1ine Win 10,000 malek@nopozm.cz

So as i am totally clueless with computers i am just wondering two things.

1- How the hell do i stop them coming even though i block them every day.

2- If i had opened one when i first had them what would have happened.

Thanks to anyone reading and able to help an old crock.

Right, these sly twats deliberately misspell words to prevent flagged terms like 'casino' or 'bonus' etc. so your filters don't bin them. On Gmail and others you can choose words for both headers and content to ensure these go straight in the bin. I can only suggest a look at the IP they come from in the header info, it'll likely be the same for all and see if you can block it as spam.

Cheers for that Mr Dunover,
Iv'e binned them all so i cannot check the IP but i did look to see if there was any more info earlier ones and did not check that to be honest.
I am just concerned that maybe i clicked on one in the earlier days and that's why i cannot stop getting them.
I don't think i did but not sure.
It's just annoying more than anything and i can live with proper junk mail i receive but not this shit.
Years ago i had my debit card details stolen and of course since then i am a bit edgy.
