And in case you actually did mean From: rather than recipient address...

Unfortunately __SUBJ_HAS_TO_1 isn't performing well enough against the 
current masscheck corpora to be published. It's possible that the majority 
of mail has the Subject: header appear before the To: header (which would 
be the __SUBJ_HAS_TO_2 rule I haven't gotten around to writing yet).

It also doesn't work on a "bare" email address in the To: header, the RE 
requires proper angle-bracket form.

If you can post a spample or two somewhere I'll see what I can do.
