on my linux box i create a user spam, installed pine then forward all spam
mail to that, then in the morning sort thru it to see if any real mail was
caught, or for automation use bounce and delete the spam, of course any
NDR's will come back with error messages which is no fun then setup
procmail with this:

:0 B
*Unsolicited commercial email rejected

* ^From.*
! user at

user at is then the replacement postmaster.
