If you're running Exchange 2003 SP2 or higher, you'll have email filtering capabilities.  In the Exchange System Mgmt console, expand the Global Settings folder, right-click Message Delivery, select Properties.  From there, select the Sender Filtering tab, click the Add button, enter *@craigslist.org, then OK and OK, and you should be good.
