There is no solution to malware distribution because that would involve inspecting the traffic running through the relays.

Being able to separate webmail from the parent web presence (e.g. gmail from google.com, Yahoo Mail from yahoo.com, etc.) would be a big step forward in curbing spam.  This would allow the exit operation to refuse traffic to the webmail service while stilling allowing access to the parent presence.
