It sounds like you haven't installed Ubuntu yet - you need to boot from 
the CD and then follow the installation process.  If you don't know how 
to boot from CD we need the make / model of your machine to guide you.

Yes - use your email program to filter incoming messages.  How to do 
that again depends on the specific email program you use.

Good luck
