Amazon.com doesn't send spam. If you're getting messages from them, you've signed up for something.

Any filtering done at the e-mail client level means you haven't blocked anything. You're just filtering it to a Junk folder. If you're getting actual spam messages (not marketing you've signed up for), then your e-mail provider has a very bad filter. I use Gmail and get hardly any spam.

You could try using Firetrust Mailwasher? It's an anti-spam program and more.
Once installed, the program (icon) sits on your Desktop and to get your mail in, you double click it and you can check your emails. At this point, all your emails are still on your ISP's server. Mailwasher can check your emails and blacklist any those you don't want, and just allow in, the ones you do. The next time a blacklisted email arrives, it will be flagged by Mailwasher.
