Dumping spam without downloading - Mac Applications & Software

I have the misfortune to own a domain which is being used in forged mail headers by a spammer who is flooding AOL seeking valid mail addresses. As a result i get about 250 "550 MAILBOX NOT FOUND" messages per day from AOL. Can any one suggest a way to clear these messages from the mail server without downloading them? I'm quite willing to miss a valid bounced mail message if that's the consequence....

    PopManager ($25 shareware) will do this.

    If you have some control (shell access) over your domain host
    you should (if it's any kind of unix system) be able to write
    a procmail filter file that will trash these for you; while
    you're at it, you can use spamassassin or something like it
    to kill your spam.

    Thanks to all who replied. POPmonitor is just what I was seeking.
