Wow, still

Ok, I've been running the filters posted at SecuritySage doing header_checks and mime_header_checks in Postfix for the last for days, and I've had a grand total of zero junk mails delivered to my dummy account. That's zero delivered, mind you, the mail server is rejecting these outright, so they never hit the mail account at all. In the same amount of time, my mac.com has been hit about 60 times, and that's just the ones that were actually delivered.

No, not quite a fair test since my mac.com account is in a bit wider circulation, including to some (unfortunately) PC email users, and we all know how often viruses and worms come along and steal entire mail lists from those folks... Still, if you're running your own mail server with Postfix, do yourself a favor and check out those filters. ;)
