I am using the Sare Stocks rule that comes with RulesDuJour and it doesn't
get flagged.

SpamAssassin 3.1.3
MailScanner 4.54.6
Sendmail 8.13.7
DCC, Pyzor and Razor are latest builds as well

RulesDuJour updates nightly

The rules that trigger for the mentioned mail are as follows:

0.00	BAYES_50	Bayesian spam probability is 40 to 60%
1.96	DATE_IN_FUTURE_03_06	Date: is 3 to 6 hours after Received: date
1.09	EXTRA_MPART_TYPE	Header has extraneous Content-type:...type=
