[TriLUG] Rejecting emails for which the sender is the recipient in Postfix

Howdy all!  I've been cracking down on spam on my electronsweatshop.com
setup, and I'm almost where I want to be.  I recently started using
spamass-milter to reject mail that gets a spam score over a certain
limit, which has been great.  Now I'm noticing that a lot of the spam
that gets rejected has me listed as the sender and the recipient, and so
the bounce messages still come to me, which is annoying.  I'd like to
just reject mail that has me listed as the sender and the recipient.

I've come across postfwd in Google - a mail filter that let's you make
some rules, but I'd really prefer a postfix or spamassassin config that
doesn't require installing additional software.  What does the TriLUG
oracle do about these types of spam?
