I presume you mean receiving. For that SpamAssassin's a popular solution. It features a Bayesian algorithm that learns from spam as well as a wealth of customization options that you can use to allow/block various different types of spam (or spam-like) messages.

SendMail contains features designed to keep an intruder from using your computer as a spam sending relay, but these days they're turned on by default.
