I'm sure some of you have probably been hit by this.
I have a spam filter (popfile) that tags spam with 'Subject: [Spam]'

Recently some clever hackers have sent me emails that procmail puts in my Inbox despite them having that header.
The headers of these emails look something like this and have the '&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&Message-ID:' header:

MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain;
Content-Tranfer-Encoding: 7bit

Is there a recipe I can use to stop these?
Something like:

:0 D
* ^.*Message-ID:.*

 	I not understand but I have the feeling that you want to
 	change the rule:

*  ^.+Message-ID:

 	To be precise:

*  ^&+Message-ID:

 	No need for '.*' at end of line because '.*' means:
 	anything (exept NewLine) or nothing.
