procmail might have worked, but it's more of a pain to learn procmail
than it is to write my own filter.  I also get more flexibility this way.

The write-up of my approach is at

Maildrop does exactly this. For instance,

^From:.*User Name/

Transforms to this snippet of .mailfilter:

if ( /^From:.*User Name/:h )
	to /dev/null

Works with exim, postfix and probably qmail OOB.

maildrop is definitely recommended these days (especially for anyone still running procmail).
