Hi all.

I've been trying to deal with this but I'm running out of ideas, I seem to be getting about 150-emails a day which is spam to my iCloud email.

I have flagged them as junk, and tried to unsubscribe from many, all to no avail. At this minute I have 833 emails which is rendering my iCloud email useless to me.

How can I defend vs this using the iCloud website + my iPad?, or can I make another iCloud email address and use that with my iTunes ID, and delete the current email totally?

At that point you should just think about changing your email.

I usually only get 1 or 2 per day, but I've gotten 6 today which is really annoying.

150 is a lot to deal with - forward each one to spam@icloud.com so Apple can block them.
Where did you get that email address from?
To report spam or other suspicious emails that you have received in your iCloud.com, me.com or mac.com inbox, please send them to abuse@icloud.com

In addition:
To report spam or other suspicious messages that you have received through iMessage, please send them to imessage.spam@icloud.com with the requested information.
If you receive what you believe to be a phishing email purporting to be from Apple, please send it to reportphishing@apple.com, a monitored email inbox, which does not generate individual email replies.

spam@icloud.com is the same as abuse

The bit in bold could be part of your problem - if you try and unsubscribe from an unscrupulous sender, all you're doing is confirming your email address is real and in use, and therefore more valuable to spammers...

How can I make another @me.com address on my Apple ID?

If I make a whole new account though I loose my iTunes account right?

Seriously why can't you just make a new account with the iTunes account name?
