"Spam & eggs. Spam and beans,. Spam spam spam spam spam"

Is it me, or am I the only poor soul who is under severe spam attack?

I currently use Mailwasher to infiltrate and bin all spurious emails that I receive. Your selected spam is blacklisted and bounced back to the villainous little shits that sent it in the first place.

Over the last couple of weeks I have received an increasing amount of offers to enlarge my penis, improve my lovelife and buy Viagra in bulk for a discounted price. I am pretty certain I require none of these advantages offered to me so they get bounced. But still they keep coming.

Does anybody out there know of any (preferably free) software available that stops this crap, at source?

In my humble opinion there is only one way to sort the spam problem. Change e-mail address.

As a last resort, yes.

You can't stop it at source. Some ISPs will stop it server side (mine does, but about 10% still gets through). Changing your email address is the only sure way. And you need to make it obscure: something the robots won't guess at. Even then, once you start using it, it will become known and you'll be back to square one.
