The upper/lower case is immaterial as thes matches ale all
'ignorecase', but you don't want the above regexp in any case since
[SPAM] is a character set so the regexp matches anything with an 's',
'p', 'a' or 'm' in the subject.

I don't know what would cause the looping, but you want at least


as the regexp.

What are the reasons (error log, smtp-failure log ?) for the failure in
the notification 'loop'?
