10-15 mails a day is at the low end.

That's past now; you have got to get yourself a new one if you want to
get rid of the spam mails.

Best way IMHO is to use a seperate ("public") emails adress for lists. 
Throw away all incoming messages on that account that doesn't come from 
the list server (whitelisting).  That'll reduce it to just a few spam 
mails a day the list server doesn't catch.
You might wanna add a note about this in your sig and how to contact 
you via your second email adress; be sure to make that adress human 
readable only.
