What file are you using for the above entry?

Well, you're using globbing (which is correct), and the syntax looks
right. The only things I can think of is either an incorrect filename
(e.g., adding your rules to /etc/spamassassin/user_prefs.template) or
not restarting "spamd", which may or may not read the rules on every
pass - I don't know for sure, but restarting it wouldn't hurt.
