As one person already recommended, the antidrug ruleset is helpful against
(Disclaimer: I wrote antidrug, so I do have bias)
Another add on that's helpful is the surbl.org URI blacklists. With sa 2.6x
it's a bit more involved to install, but it's really fairly easy. You just
get the Mail::SpamAssassin::SpamCopURI perl module from sourceforge and do
a standard install..
Your message itself got tagged on my system with these hits:
X-EVI-MailScanner-SpamCheck: spam, SpamAssassin (score=5.61, required 5,
BIZ_TLD 0.10, DRUGS_ANXIETY 0.01, DRUGS_ANXIETY_EREC 1.00,
DRUGS_ERECTILE 1.00, LOCAL_MEDS_URI 0.50, SPAMCOP_URI_RBL 3.00)
(SPAMCOP_URI_RBL is the SURBL rule, very good spam hit rates, near zero
false positive rate)
The only custom non-public rule is the LOCAL_MEDS_URI rule, one of my
experimental rules. Still, the message would have tagged without it with a
score of 5.11. And of course that didn't even get any header rule points
because your headers are different than what a spammer would send....
