Reg-ex mail receipts

I have compiled a list of regular expressions to filter return receipts, out-of-office notices, reading confirmations, and other automated responses flooding our mailboxes.

For now, I am sure there is much room for improvements. Suggestions are most welcome.

For the record, adding Content-Type: .*report-type=delivery-status would catch a lot of receipts, though it also matches postmaster notifications about "user unknown" and similar problems, at least those from sendmail.
