Hello there,
I have a little script that checks the subject of the email and if its blacklisted it would not deliver the email.. the issue here is that I am trying to blacklist an email subject but each time I get a forum message from a different user it wont work because its different.. here's what I have

[(04:34 PM)][(root@dedico)] [(/home/admin)] $ cat .procmailrc
LOGFILE=$HOME/procmail.log
VERBOSE="on"
:0
*^Subject: (spammingEmails|sent you comment|posted a message)
/dev/null
:0
! myemail@gmail.com


[(04:36 PM)][(root@server)] [(/home/admin)] $ cat procmail.log
procmail: [28023] Thu Mar 22 16:34:59 2012
procmail: No match on "^Subject: (spammingEmails|sent you comment|posted a message)"
procmail: Executing "/usr/sbin/sendmail,-oi,myemail@gmail.com"
procmail: Assigning "LASTFOLDER=/usr/sbin/sendmail -oi myemail@gmail.com"
procmail: Notified comsat: "admin@:/usr/sbin/sendmail -oi myemail@gmail.com"
