Are these maildir or mbox folders?  From the format above it sounds like 
mbox.  Perhaps these sample stanzas from mine will help if they are 

* ^Subject: .*(Blogger post failed|DBMAIL: delivery failure)

* ^Subject: .*(embroider|cross-stitch)

The first consigns messages with either of the two strings to /dev/null, 
the second directs messages to the Sewing sub-folder.

If you are using mbox you will need locking, so ':0' becomes ':0:' and 
you should remove the final slash from the folder name.  HTH
