You appear to have skipped a few basic steps here, why is your server even being reached in the first place to send these emails? Is it bot spam from the internet? Doesn't sound like it really as they'd probably be using fake account names not "nobody". Is it cron outputs and the likes?? I really expect you should be able to remove the cause of the problem, not stop it getting worse.
