I've seen several of these, mostly in drug spams. Apparently now that
antidrug is in SA 3.0 they are trying to evade those rules.
Strangely, those messages are still getting tagged, mostly by razor and
SURBL rules as they still have links to a website..
The most recent example got hit by razor, a weak hit from bayes, and a
lot of DNSBLs of the relay (tweaked SA 2.64):
score=16.199, required 5, BAYES_60 1.59, HTML_60_70 0.11,
HTML_FONT_BIG 0.27, HTML_MESSAGE 0.10,
INFO_GREYLIST_NOTDELAYED -0.01, MSGID_FROM_MTA_SHORT 1.00,
PRIORITY_NO_NAME 1.21, RAZOR2_CF_RANGE_51_100 0.20,
RAZOR2_CHECK 1.05, RCVD_IN_BL_SPAMCOP_NET 1.50, RCVD_IN_DSBL 0.71,
RCVD_IN_SORBS_HTTP 1.20, RCVD_IN_SORBS_MISC 0.00, RCVD_IN_XBL 4.92
So, while I've seen them, I have yet to get a FN on one.
