That is a typical spam message. Maybe it was caught wrong, but it was caught!
It probably had bad encoding, and that is what tripped the bad content error.
Just looking at the URL's contained in the message, it looks like a porn spam.


MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
