To reiterate: Objective was to ban all 'Empty' Subject emails (emails with no textual components)
Why?: Because you can eliminate alot of junk/tainted/viri emails by doing so. 

To accomplish this task do the following:

1. mkdir -p /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf
2  cd /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf
3. pico -w /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf/20localscores

**add the following to the 20localscores file
header EMPTY_SUBJECT Subject =~ /^\s*$/
score  EMPTY_SUBJECT 20.0

4. signal-event email-update

** You can change the rule name (EMPTY_SUBJECT), file name (20localscores), and score (20) to anything you like as these are purely your preference.
