spam email - how to block

the spam email in my verizon email account is absolutely out of control.  i would say anywhere from 40 - 60 a day.  the spam detector is on - it does not seem to work.  short of cancelling my email account, is there an easy solution.  i dont have these issues with gmail.  i spoke to a verizon rep who basically shrugged and said oh you must have done something to trigger these.  really, i dont think i'm looking for a russian bride.
