Welcome markeymark and thank you for posting.  I'm sorry to hear about the email trouble.  The how to protect against phishing section has information that should help.

 

Regards,

Alex

Other than changing your email address, you can inform your contacts that your email will have a keyword in the subject line like "nospam" and that they should delete the junk mail without opening or previewing it.
