As has been told to you more than once, the correct solution is simple...
1. Stop forwarding spam, or
2. Do not forward *any* emails, period.
If you absolutely *must* allow your users the option to blindly forward
*all* incoming mail to another account, then you need to do one of two
1. Disable *all* spam filtering on the target address, or
2. Implement some kind of additional spam filtering on accounts that
forward mail that refuses to forward any mail with a very *low* spam
If you cannot do one or the other reliably, then you will continue to
have the problem.
