The (?i) is irrelevant as the match always ignores case. Also, I don't
think that's what you want as it will match any Subject that contains
any of the letters f, u, c, k in either case. What is the action of this

If generic_nonmember_action is Discard, non-member posts should be
discarded unless some prior test causes them to be held. Things which
could cause a hold are in order:
A match on a header_filter_rule with a Hold action.
One of the addresses returned by get_senders() is a moderated member and
member_moderation_action is Hold.
None of the addresses returned by get_senders() is a member and the
address returned by get_sender() matches an entry in hold_these_nonmembers
An address returned by get_senders() is an unmoderated member and the
list's emergency setting is Yes.
What is the reason given for the hold?
In the case of the message headers in your OP, get_senders() will return
a list like
'abia at multi.net.pk',
which are lowercased versions of respectively, the undecoded From:, The
unix from which I deduce from Return-Path: and the undecoded Reply-To:.
Both the original From: and Reply-To: decode to
"Abia" <Abia at multi.net.pk>
msg.get_sender() returns '=?utf-8?b?ikfiaweiidxbymlhqg11bhrplm5ldc5waz4=?='
>From what you've said, that message whose decoded Subject: header is
Subject: I InstaF... Request is Pending
would match the header_filter_rule and be handled per that rule's
action, but then so would a message with
Subject: It's a fine day
You can decode these headers like
>>> from email.header import decode_header
[('"Abia" <Abia at multi.net.pk>', 'utf-8')]
