mutt & backscatter clues

I'm getting a little overwhelmed by backscatter spam.
Typically I open the mail (in mutt) and look for the "From" line in the
bounced headers. When I see a forged name,
"fake name" <my_real_address@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
then I know it's backscatter and not a failed email from me.
But that has become too slow for the rare benefit of being alerted when
there is a real failure.
I wish I could, say, grep the email body for "From" lines.
Is there a way to do that?
Or maybe I could configure Exim on my own server so that a failure alert
looks different in mutt than bounces from other servers.
Is there a way to do that in the configuration files?
What strategies are other people using?
