* !^TO<you>
spam/

Replace <you> with your username.  You could just use the LOGNAME
variable for that but I didn't here because I wanted to remind people who
get mail from more than one source you can or the usernames or even the
whole addresses if you wanted to do that...

Note I use maildir so no lock is needed.  And obviously this needs to go
in after mailing lists are processed.
