Even better reject anything without a To to you or a mailing list
address you're subscribed to, e.g. I use this in gnus:

|          [ 100's of rules for mailing lists and other personal addresses ]
| 	("personal" "^\\(To\\|Cc\\).*james@nocrew.org")
|       ("spam" "")))

That kills all the "To: afriend@public.com" (or whatever it is) type
ones.  Another possibility, assuming you don't use a pop3 (IIRC) server
which generates them, is to spam-folder anything with an "X-UIDL"
