Considering the amount of spam that abuse mailboxes get then spam
filtering them is actually a good idea. You just have to be a little
careful to not block the complaints.

One way I did was to look for a "Received: " header in the body of the
suspected spam and allow it though if it is rejected. A backup for that
was to have the reject say "Please include the word 'xyzzy' in the subject
to bypass the filters" and allow anything with that through (which
happened less than once per month).
