In the case of my ISP: X-Spam: Yes is the tag to look out for!

#2 Generate a Eudora filter [filter?] like this

it just looks for the simple appearance of the X-Spam Tag

so place this filter at the top of your filter list to do what you want

If you also/instead want to use the X-Spam-Report detail in your filtering [see here]

If any header line of the incoming email starts with this text: X-Spam-Score: ***

might work if the Header describing the spam score is 3 or more digits

Enough? [contact me]
