One image spam

I've been getting tons of spam that gets through our office's SpamAssasin filter. This was brought home to me big time after being away from the internet for 10 days. I was faced with almost 300 emails - mostly spam to plough through.

Apple Mail's spam filter is good if it has something to munch on, but these messages have one big gif image and then a random few lines of text from a story.

I created this little mail rule to filter them and it works nicely. Note that I get mail from several servers so I only do this filtering on mail direct to the office server.

I check the Junk folder and if there's somebody there I do want to get mail from I simply right click their name and "Add to Address Book".
