Find a new and better email hosting service that will do what you want,
or run your own mailserver on your friend's internet connection such
that you control the spam filtering.

As a half way measure install Mailwasher. (it's free) It downloads just
the name of the sender, and the subject line allowing you to delete
everything you don't want to waste time downloading.

Plus the ability to bounce the email making it appear you have a "no such
address"
But that said... My ISP (Xtra) blocks 99/100 spams that would otherwise come
my way.
Of the 1 or 2 that make it through each day, Windows Mail junk mails most of
them.
The most that spam affects my daily life is me having to delete 1 or less
emails per day.
Of those that do actually make it to my inbox, no info is sent back to the
Mother Ship as that is blocked on various levels.

How badly are you being swamped?

Not if the mass mailing is a subscribed service or other.

Ok, so a minor problem not the flood that you made out initially.

Sending bulk mail is made very hard because of the measures that people
take with spam filters etc - a book on how to get your emails thru is a
very valid publication.
