header_checks

I'm using Postfix 2.7 and I'm trying to setup some header filters.
In main.cf I'm using regexp, not pcre.
header_checks entry:
/^Subject: .*Money/ REJECT
Which rejects an email with the word money in the subjectline. Now what if you want to reject the message if it does _not_ contain the word money? By documentation a prefix exclamation should do it:
!/^Subject: .*Money/ REJECT
but it doesn't work!!

I have tried this, but... I would expect the the line

!/^Subject: .*Money/ REJECT

should reject all emails, since all emails will contain a header line which does not match that string.
Is that what you are seeing?

Can you try this...

if /^Subject:/
!/^Subject: .*Money/ REJECT
endif
