How about one of the spamassassin gurus here gives us a hand? You 
*could* set up a spamassassin rule that gives a strong negative value to 
something in the headers. I can see from a message that just came in 
that Dhawal is suggesting something similar.

My headers look like:

Return-Path: <alex at>
Received-SPF: pass ( authenticated connection); client-ip=; helo=[]; envelope-from=alex at; x-software=spfmilter 0.97 with libspf2-1.0.0;
Received: from [] (nkcenter [])
	(user=alex mech=PLAIN bits=0)
	by (8.13.1/8.13.1) with ESMTP id k43GkwD0017301
	for <alex at>; Wed, 3 May 2006 11:46:59 -0500

So I could set a rule that hits on "authenticated connection", "user=whatever mech=whatever bits=whatever" or something similar. I'm using sendmail, btw.
