[horde] Regular Expression Filter of recipients

I have a working Spam filter, but there is still SPAM that gets  
through.  Most of the time it is addressed to Sam Hernandez (or some  
variant) <philippe at faure.ca>.

Actually, I tried to get regular expressions to work and I couldn't  
get it to filter with test emails.  I was hoping someone else had  
tried, and had luck with regular expressions.

My plan was to delete emails that were obviously spam, if there was a  
name that wasn't even close to mine and with my email address they  
would be filtered.
