Install a spam filter - I like spamassassin.  Use procmail.  Spam is a fact and 
isn't going to be easily defeated, and asking for technical solutions when none 
exist (or can exist: you can't have your cake and eat it, expecting openness *and* 
security from nefarious types) isn't going to do much about it, I'm afraid.
