FWIW, here are a few .procmail recipies which I've found moderately
successful.  The last one in particular cut down a significant amount of
recent spam activity.

* ? formail -x"From" -x"From:" -x"Sender:" \
    -x"Reply-To:" -x"Return-Path:" -x"To:" \
    | egrep -is -f ~/.spammers.txt

* ? formail -x"Subject:" \
    | egrep -is -f ~/.spam.subjects

* remove(me)?@

* ^Content-Type:.*(euc-kr|ks_c).*
