certainly, here it is. btw, if you don't want to keep spam in a spam
folder then you can make procmail bounce it with an error code. however,
bouncing spam once it has arrived on your system is usually a waste
of time and just clogs up your mail queue because most spammers won't
receive mail...better to just file it in /dev/null.

I also have these lines in there, but commented out. I subscribe to the
SPAM-L digest and checking the message body is likely to catch mail from
that list. when i get some spare time i'll fix these rules so that they
don't interfere with SPAM-L:
