This is possible if you are the administrator of the mail server, and 
you wish to impose your definition of exactly what is spam on everyone 
who uses your mail server.  As a user of someone else's mail server, it 
is not possible to do that.

You may be able to configure your mail client to not automatically 
acknowledge receipt of mail, but the chances are pretty good that it is 
of no use anyway.  Most sane and still in business spammers do not 
include a reply-to address that can be used to track them down anyway.
