If want a *really* high score, you can always include the Generic Test for 
Unsolicited Bulk Email (GTUBE) in the body of the email.   (This is a bit 
like the Eicar test "virus", but for spam instead.)

To do this, put the following on one line with no spaces into your email (I 
have broken it up here so that it doesn't trigger everybody's spam filters on 
this mailing list):





How should I know if it works?   That's what beta testers are for.   I only 
coded it.
