Bad side: I've started getting more of these lately. I hadn't really seen much gold spam since the game's launch.
Good side: It means the game is getting popular enough that the gold farmers are finding STO more attractive to find victims on. All the big successful games have some level of of this. Even in stuff like WoW, I still get them once in a while, despite Blizzard's best efforts.

I reported an EgPal spammer today, and now my account is banned. :/
No idea if there is a connection, and maybe they thought I was involved in it? If they do, I most certainly was not. I am an honest gamer who just wants to enjoy the game like everyone else. I am in no way connected to the spammers.
Won't that cause an issue with Auction sales/returns?
I mean, in a properly coded game the administration contacts wouldn't be blockable but we all know the coding in this game is a little... shall we say off?
Considering people who have been chat-banned have complained about not receiving their exchange sales/returns...I'd say it's likely they count as you mailing to yourself for blocking purposes, even if it says "Exchange" in the sender field. Unless the chat-ban also blocks you from receiving mail.
Anyway, it should be simple enough to check...empty your exchange listing, set the only friends and fleet can mail -option, sell one item thats in high demand so it sells quickly and see if you get the mail.
im now getting these blastered emails as well, i dont like ignoring any player no matter how silly they are, its not my way to put up auto ignore. but the system is set that way with the report spam option.
it would be far less messier if cryptic had jumped on the issue before it became one.
