Unfortunately, the PIX does not have any spam filtering capability.
My suggestion is to use a 3rd party spam filter outsourced like Frontbridge (now Microsoft)
a packet level firewall cannot filter data on application level
(well, some firewall claim or try to do that, but it's a task for specialised software as lrmoore explained)
