As a Debian package you might find mailfilter worth a look.  It too
looks at the mail headers (but not the body of the mail) and will delete
mail according to regexes you specify in a configuration file.  There is
also provision for having a whitelist.

It can be run prior to fetchmail using the 'preconnect' parameter in
your $HOME/.fetchmailrc.
