Blocking an individual email address

After reading the page you linked to, and looking at the examples, I added
the line To:user at REJECT (using my personal email), and it had no
effect.  I can't find any good reason it didn't work, but it fails to
prevent me from sending mail from inside my work network to my home address.

any ideas?
