Using the method Grant states is probably the best and most clear.

Some of the newer milters when policy=none, will still add headers to 
the message. However, this behaviour is undocumented and 
counter-intuitive to what "none" is. At some future date I might add 
policy=header as a more clear indication, but for now I would suggest:

	policy=tag  subject-tag=''

as equivalent to the missing policy=header choice. This is the same as 
Grant's suggestion, but using the new option format that replaced the 
older dash-letter format recently.
