procmail filter to catch ????????????????????

Can anyone suggest a procmail filter that will catch at least some of
the From: \123\456\789\........... stuff?

(I mean what you see for the From: and Subject: lines with

Spamassassin does this quite well but I find the slowdown in processing
mail is unacceptable. I've tried things like:

* ^Subject:.*[\0-9\][\0-9\][\0-9\][\0-9\][\0-9\]


* ^Subject:.*[0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]

This seems to work some of the time but not reliably; other
modifications end by catching practically everything.

Can any regexp gurus kindly suggest something better?
