[mso] Re: This is tooo funny...

Yeah, it goes into the 'false positive' column but it does it
scientifically, at least. I note that the failed tests for spamminess are
due to how a list processor replaces some of the meta fields to supercede
things like the mailer, reply-to path,etc.

I particular, I'm looking at this line:
>
tests=EXCUSE_15,FORGED_MUA_OUTLOOK,MISSING_OUTLOOK_NAME,MSG_ID_ADDED_BY_MT
A_3,THIS_AINT_SPAM

It says the Meta User Agent field (X-User Agent) is forged because it
lacks a message ID and that the message ID was added by the 3rd Mail
Transfer Agent (another trip wire which indicates a spoof relay...and then
it points to the last straw as being 'This ain't spam'.

And don't worry, I'm aware that most of my message isn't likely to get to
you without a Spam Assassin translation.<g>
