This can be done with the Microsoft Scripting Agent. Personally I have done it in the past, It tends to beat up the box pretty good why the Scripting agent seems to put more of a load on the box then having the outlook clients to basically the same thing makes no sense to me, but then again this is a MS$ product. I really would either do it on the client or have MS/SA route the spam to an email address on the exchange server.
