Mh, I dont use filters, but never heard of that before. And it would be quite useless, because most spammers send their messages with some bulk-mail program, which sends one message by recipient. Also, the BCC feature is very important when sending confidential copies of a message to someone you dont want to disclose. I think business would prefer to have some more colateral spam than to quit this feature.
