A fairly close second place is...the electronics superstore chanin, Frys! Now, I am a regular customer of Frys Duluth, Georgia store but, thanks to their behavior, I will look for an alternative any chance I get. I have gone several times to their website and attempted to remove myself from their email spam lists to no avail. In 40 days, I have received 114 emails from Frys. That's too much junk, even for a regular customer.
In third...Twitter! I rarely use the Twitter app, but I do have an account. They must desperately want me to come back because in 40 days they have sent me 93 unsolicited emails.
Congratulations to the winners! In my 40 days of flagging and deleting unwanted emails, I have deleted 2,855 emails from 1,957 separate senders. Here is the top ten:

One of the difficulties of filtering out all this spam is that the spammers who have control of a domain are able to change the account name with each email they send. I've figured out one way around that. I've discovered that virtually no WANTED email comes from the domains with extensions .accountant, .cricket, .date, .bid, .faith, .men, .online, .party, .review, .science, .stream, .top, .trade, .webcam, .win, and .xyz. I am certain I have NO friends or relatives with email addresses with domains ending in these extensions, so OUT THEY GO!
Most of the spam I have identified still comes from .com domains, but filtering out these spam domain extensions makes it really easy to set up rules to get rid of large numbers of spam. Below are the top spammers listed by domain name extension.
