I added "click here" and "clicking here" and that seems to have helped catch a lot of spam for me as well. Many of the variations on "To be removed from this list..." include one or the other of those phrases. It's amazing how many variations there are on this line.

This would be fantastic. I wanted to thank everyone involved with this
project. I am impressed. I have been using the efm for just a few days now and it work wonders. It was also easy to install and set up.
I have a question about ways to filter spam that is on the idea of
<undisclosed recipients> when the to field is:
someaddress@wellknowndomain such as email@example.com
Would something like this have any effect?
I wouldn't want to block all mail not addresses directly to me (even if there was a way to do that) as that would probably filter out mailing lists that I am subscribed to.
I originally set up the filters to bounce mail from someone who was harrassing me but the spam blocking possibilities have captured my attention.
