Good afternoon, where is your email address hosted? Are you using something like Gmail/Hotmail

Cheers

OK, speak with Network solutions to identify what spamblocking features they have. This may incur an additional monthly cost

The problem is that you are receving a lot of spam mail.  These sites sell their lists of addresses around so trying to block them all is like trying to stop the tide from coming in with a sand castle.

What you can do to help is to not respond or reply to these lists.  That included "unsubscribing";  once you do this you have informed them that the email address they are sending to is active with a live person on the other end.

This will improve some over time but won't fix the issue.

About your only option is to change your email address and do your best to protect it from the start.
