You might want to think about investing in a good anti-spam appliance.
Of course for that to be feasible, you must host your own email (run
your own mail server) which I am not sure you do.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Alas, I do not. The mail server is
purely part of the MIT system, besides which, I am not sure I am
smart enough to run a mail server. PAT]
