Unhappy Spam+Postfix+Fetchmail


Hi,
I have recently set up my own mailserver but I still need to keep my old email account running (too much hassle to change it).
I have the following configuration:
Fetchmail grabs email from my POP3 ISP account(I use www.gmx.net if it makes any difference) which passes it to postfix on port 25.
My problem is I still get tons of spam on my ISP account, spamassasin gets about 1/3 of it but I still get ~200 spam messages a day into my inbox .
What do you suggest I do? I've been reading about configuring postfix to reject more spam will this help much or am I barking up the wrong tree? Should I be looking at changing my spamassasin config??
Thanks
Dave
