I'm using this as the preferred choice for receiving logs from Windows boxen.

I don't use a filter, but use a destination along the lines of ...
template("$FULLDATE $FULLHOST $FACILITY.$PRIORITY $MSG\n")
owner(root) group(root) perm(0600) dir_perm(0700) create_dirs(yes));
... which means that logs for each host go into a separate directory, and that
they are 'rotated' on a daily basis. This may not suit your needs, but works
well for me.
