I've had my gmail account for several years but the spammers have found me & have become really annoying. I'd like to get a new gmail account & stop using the old one until I've notified all my legitmate contacts--then close the old one. From my inbox, I can't see how to open a new acount.

If you sign out of your existing account, you will see a sign in page. Under the boxes for entering your username and password, there is a great big blue button which says "Create an account".

Try clicking it....  :-)

Though Spam isn't really a good reason to stop using an existing account, especially if you've had it for some years and everyone knows your address. No account is ever free of Spam - it just isn't possible to eliminate it. 

Is all this Spam coming into your Inbox? If so, mark it Spam so that the filters get trained. If it's going into Spam then the filters are doing a proper job and keeping your Inbox clear - and the messages will be auto-deleted after 30 days.
