Never try to unsubscribe this sort of crap. It just confirms a valid email address for them and leads to more junk.

so no fix for this ?
You haven't even mentioned who the email provider is chadda. I have my emails come through on my iPhone, Outlook, Live, Gmail and a personal one. The settings are slightly different for each of them.
Google can fix anything ;)

Go into settings/Filters and blocked addresses. You can add a new filter which will block emails from reaching her inbox if they meet the parameters you set. Blocking addresses rarely works as they usually alternate them

Check if her mail provider can handle blacklisting or custom spam handling. Otherwise it might be a good idea to change mail provider to any that has this features. Of course Apple Mail can handle spams to a extent but it's always preferable to have the spam handling at the mail handler itself (web hotel or similar)
