Sudden SPAM attack

Hi - I have enjoyed the protection of the Demon SPAM filter from when
they started and received 5 to 10 emails per day. Today I have had about
a 1000, and the help desk says they cannot help me. They sent me to site
to get a "free" mailwasher, which isn't after 30 days. Anyway I prefer
to use SMPT if I can.
"They" have my email address but 99% of the stuff has the wrong name
before the @ symbol. Is there any way I can set up Turnpike 6.04 to
filter out these ?
Thanks
