About 2 weeks ago i started receiving about 20 emails daily from different unknown and unsolicited sources, with unusual e-mail addresses each saying either "re your file" or "re your document". The emails have attachments which are all the same size. Because i realised that they were not genuine i haven't bother to open the files. I am with Yahoo e-mail and have used the option to cancel future emails from the individual sources. However, each e-mail has a different source consisting of numbers and letters. Question: can I stop these emails without having to completely change my e-mail address.

No, unfortunately you cannot. They are originating from worm/virus infected computers with address books that have your email address in them. All you can do is delete them immediately without opening them.
Please ensure that your own computer is protected by an up-to-date anti-virus program at all times.
