If you have OS 4.5 and up (not sure about 4.2 though maybe can be done too) you can make firewall setting in device to receive just email from contacts. Check in your device under Option>Security>Firewall. Not huge fan of forwarding back and fourth due to spam. It might be good time to consider buying some enterprise antispam for the whole company.
