Procmail recipe problem

I have a recipe that is supposed to delete any messages marked as spam by spamassassin.  This should be a simple recipe, but I can't get it to work.  Below is the recipe, the headers from the message, and the log results. Any suggestions?


Here is the recipe:

VERBOSE=on
LOGFILE=/home/vpopmail/domains/ic-2000.com/chris.log
:0
* ^X-Spam-Status: Yes
/dev/null

:0
* ^.*
! chrisf@ic-2000.com
-----------------------

Here are the headers from my test spam.

Received: from sbs2003.ic-2000.local ([192.168.0.200]) by SBS2003.ic-2000.local with Microsoft SMTPSVC(6.0.3790.1830);

Are You sure that procmail gets the message already filtered with SA?

Maybe not... does the rule set look like it should filter this message?  I think it should.

Yes it should filter this message out. Unless it's checked with SA later (on the another account)
Usually such filters looks like following (example from mine .procmailrc)
