Blocking empty To with rules

It's possible, although that restriction doesn't directly block email that
is missing either from or to.. it just blocks email from severely broken
senders that don't issue HELO...

However, one can conjecture that if a sender so broken that they can't
issue a HELO, then it wouldn't be surprising if the message was devoid of
other required parts of a mail transfer, such as from: to: or subject:.

As for the missing/blank From: line, SA has rules for those too, you might
want to check into adjusting that score as well.
