I don't use procmail[1], so I don't know, but if it does rule 
processing in order, and exits after a match is found, you could just 
have a rule which catches all mail on which you're not in the To line 
(you need to have all your mailing lists rules first so that such 
mails, which have a similar construct, aren't binned my mistake). 
Very little spam will be directed to you directly, you'll be bcc'd on 
it, most likely.

[1] Little point at present, as I don't get any spam...

Are you sure this won't catch emails from IP addresses which aren't 
in dotted quad format? Like I say, I don't use procmail (and my reg-
ex is a bit rusty!)

I guess these mean Norman didn't see his own message? :-)

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.
