Prevent receiving emails by account name

I have an account called username@domain.com. This account receives huge number of spam messages. I would like to prevent receiving emails by this account name, and use aliases instead.
Please note that changing the account name is not possible. I'm running Zimbra 5.0.2.

Other than adjusting the spam filter rules to drop more of the spam, I cant see any way to make this work.
It's possible that you could do something at the postfix level, but I could see problems with it as postfix would get itself into a loop. ie:
Drop all mail delivered to "realaccount@domain. com"

Send all mail delivered to "alias@domain. com" to "realaccount@domain. com"
which clearly wont work.
Hopefully someone can prove me wrong :)
