It worked fine for me. All I did was save it in a file and clean off
everything before the line:

so it looked like a mail folder and changed the bounce subject so it
would be mailed to my test list instead of your list:
> Subject: BOUNCE firstname.lastname@example.org: Admin request: /^subject:\s*help\b/i
Subject: BOUNCE email@example.com: Admin request: /^subject:\s*help\b/i
It showed up in my mailbox with the subject:
Help! UFE applications missing
If you aren't editing the bounce message to remove the original headers,
maybe your mailer is. Looks like you're using Elm, which normally
doesn't pull such tricks (or do you have other patches in it?), but if
you used Pine to pipe the bounced message to approve, you must do it
in "raw mode" I'm told to keep Pine from editing headers for you. (Bad
Pine! No, no! No more junk mail for a week! :-)
