Spammers send to millions of addresses whether they are valid or not. So, it doesn't really make a difference how long you have your account 'closed'. It's likely that it will remain on their list. Remember that these addresses are usually shared and sold to 3rd parties, so you might actually be on the list of multiple spammers.
How long must this account be closed so that it doesn’t appear anymore on the spammers lists?

You're dreaming if you think that will work. Spammers don't care. It's a numbers game for them. What are you using for email?

By "close the affected email account", do you mean cancelling the account completely and making a new one?
