Although I'm not certain of your exact setup, I use procmail to filter out 
the 'spam' mail.  Well.. In reality, I use it in a reverse fashion.  

I filter all mail to my 'trash' folder, then using procmail, filter all 'good' 
mail out (ie, mailing lists, school email, personal contacts, etc).

Hope this helps.
