Question How do I make procmail recognize ISO encoded subject headers (=?ISO-)?


I've got a "problem" with my procmail anti-spam filter. My current procmail settings does move almost all my spam to the spam folder.
However, lately I've been recieving spam emails which subject header is encoded like this:


My question then, is it possible to make procmail "read" and interpret the ISO encoded subject headers and move the spam item to the spam folder?

my procmail .maillog says:

From <SPAMMERADR REMOVED> Mon Oct 6 19:30:05 2003
Subject: =?iso-8859-1?B?U2lsZGVuYWZpbCBDaXRyYXRlICB3b3JrcyBpbiB1cCB0byA4MiUgb2
Folder: /var/spool/mail/<UID> 1406

Feedback regarding this issue will be greatly appreciated
