Something that I've done to cut down on the numbers of these a quite a bit 
(instead of every day, once a week) is to tell it to discard those that have 
a high spam score.

In the Privacy options, Spam filters category I added
   X-Spam-Score: [3-9][0-9]+
as the Regexp to a Header filter, with action Discard. So anything that 
received a spam score 30 or more is automatically discarded.

Hope this helps
