I am trying to create a transport rule that will flag any email that has a specific text pattern similiar to that of a SSN in the subject field or the body of the message. Right now the rule reads that any message with this text pattern will be redirected to me.  But, I can't get the text pattern right in the rule to get the message flagged and sent to me.
Example:  111-11-111.
I cannot get the pattern right in the transport rule.  I have tried "111-11-1111", "###-##-####".
