I just setup one of my email accounts for a domain i've had for about 6 months, I find there is hundreds of spam messages. I haven't used the email anywhere, is it an idea to block say email coming to admin@, info@ ?

Sure, any address that isn't real should be blocked.

You should only be getting email for that email account unless you've setup a catch-all and redirected it to that email account. Spammers spoof everything they can, so it may say to admin or webmaster @ yourdomain but it may actually be the email account address.

Are you using a control panel? With cPanel you can actually set it so the server will reject any email for a certain email address. You can also add your own message to it, such as 'admin@domain.com is not in use anymore, please send your inquiry to support@domain.com'

Setup your default accont to :fail: if you have cpanel.
