Thank you Jim, but...
I started with those before realizing that these regular expressions 
assume that the subject line is included in the header but that the 
contents after the word "Subject:" are blank.   The messages we are 
receiving have no subject line at all -- at least they are getting 
presented to the administrator that way -- so I cannot look for a 
line that contains "Subject:"  It really  needs to be the converse -- 
I need to be able to scan the entire header and hold messages that do 
not contain a subject line.  I think I could do this with a script, 
but we don't have access to the shell so I need to use the tools 
available in the GUI.
