According to the man page, procmail egrep ignores case by default (i.e.
unless you add a 'D' flag to the rule.

You can ignore changes in spacing thus:
*^Subject:.*(out +of +office|out +of +the +office)

The procmailrc manpage includes a description of the extended regular
expression syntax.

As Cameron said, though, it'd be easier to troubleshoot if you post an
example of a subject line that fails to match...
