If you're using OE for email like you are here for usenet, then you are
*not* seeing anything like the true headers for those messages by default.
Try right-clicking on the message, left-clicking on properties and then
click on "view source". That results in the actual content of the message.
Any filtering you do should be done with this as input.

And what filtering would that be?

Idiot.
