Mail Process Delay on Exchange (non-Blackberry)

Hi all,
I'm hoping you can help me out.

I used to carry a Blackberry but have recently switched to an Android phone. When I had the Blackberry Server running, I was able to put a "mail process delay" command in the registry so that my client-based spam program could do its filtering before I saw the spam mail on my phone. Is there a way to put in such a delay when just using Exchange Server without Blackberry? What is happening is that my Android phone gets the mail so fast that there is no spam filtering.  Also I would like to keep the mail interval on my phone "as mail arrives" instead of imposing a 15 minute delay.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I couldn't find a way to delay email via System manager/Exchange however I did enable tarpitting with IMF (be careful on your IMF settings) which slowly reduced the amount of spam coming into our handhelds.

I am a home user who happens to run Exchange Server. Can you elaborate on what IMF is and where to change the settings?  Thanks.
