    Sorry John about the mis-information. Of course case is not significant,
    otherwise we would simply not receive these mails. I should have said
    "common usage" and not "protocols", since I really thought the former
    eventhough I wrote the later.

    I don't know. It's only an empirical choice based on observations. Many of us
    are more concerned by hundreds of mails a day than risking to get a rare
    false-positive. But I agree, I should have been clearer.

    I have nearly the same .procmailrc as the one Joern Engel proposed :

    :0 D
    * ^FORM:

    And I too agree that I have 0% false positive so far. But just like any filter,
    use at your own risk...
