Set the following in spam.assassin.prefs.conf ...
ok_locales  en
ok_languages en

This will cause mail mail other than en to trigger SA 'spam in a foreign
language'  type tests.

How do I tag e-mails in foreign languages like this as SPAM (see
attached e-mail)?  I receive SPAM in French, Spanish, etc how do I
tag this as well?  Is there a way to maybe have MailScanner and
SpamAssassin use multiple language files to solve this issue? I
could block e-mail from .fr and .mx, but that is going overboard it
seems.  SPAM is bad, SPAM in a foreign language is worse IMO and
seems pointless if the person doesn't understand the language.
