There is a feature where you can block all email from certain domains.  Given the unlimited number of junk domains this would not seem feasible.  You can also do the opposite and only accept email from certain domains.  If you know you only receive from a specific low number of domains this may work.
There are third-party add-ins that will take care of this for you by comparing the sending domain to their list of junk senders, but that is third-party and a few extra $$$.

Do you have Exchange Relay blocked.  To do so if you have Exchange 5.5 SP3 or prior go to the routing tab on the IMS and change some settings there based on the Q articles.  Do a search for spam, relay, etc.  The change will probably have you reroute incoming mail for your domain only.  If you have SP4 you will probably have to do this in the registry.  Most of the time closing the relay will fix this.  If it does not then you can subscribe to a service.

That willl block others from using your server as a spam relay, but will not block your incoming email.
