I personally probably get between six and ten daily, but I know how to work the delete button. It doesn't bother me much - I just delete them as they appear. I think of them as I think of traffic jams - they just take a little patience to sort out. - Jesse.
The longer you use a given email address, the more spam will be targetted to it. Period. Of course, submitting your email address on publically accessible web pages, blogs, etc., will just make matters worse.
When someone says "I used to use service provider X and now that I've switched to Y I get no spam" that does not have anything to do with the relative quality of spam filtering on the two providers. All it means for certain is that the new email address is not yet harvested/targetted.
On my business account I easily receive over 200 SPAM messages per day. Each Saturday night before going to bed I check and clear out my e-mail. When I turn the computer back on again on Monday morning I usually have between 240 and 260 e-mails waiting. All but a handful are SPAM.
I, for one, am willing to pay to send or receive e-mail if it will help cut down on the garbage. The time has come!
