I need to create a rule where if the subject has Re[1]: or any number between the [] that it is picked up as spam.  How do I create the header so that it's a single entry yet works for any number from a blank [] to any character? 
Does the * works and means anything?

# 15 Subject: Re[1]:
header PROLO_GSPAM15 Subject =~ /Re[*]:/i
score PROLO_GSPAM15 8
describe PROLO_GSPAM15 Spam - custom rule set
