My day job is primarily a Microsoft shop, and we use Outlook for our
email. It has an option for filtering by words that appear in the header,
so I think one would be able to setup a filter for a specific header, but
not with any kind of wildcard/regex matching.

Of course with Outlook, there is Jon Webb's SpamZapster, which looks at
the regular DCC header specifically and does its own checksum reporting.

I know another popular client in the Windows world is Eudora, maybe I will
download a free version if there is one and see what its capabilities are.
