fetchmail & spam problem


HI All

I am having local email server (using Centos 5.5) which is downloading mails from domains through fetchmail. Later these mails are read and write by users by the network. All are working fine. I am using sendmail for delivering mails.

Now from last 2 or three months all my emails are regularly facing 100's of daily useless emails of viagra and enlargment(spam) and they totally get annoyed with that.

Now I want to download these mails from my domains but before reaching to the inbox I want them to destroy or delete.

Please help me out how can i get rid of this problem
