Hi Devon,

It depends.

The easiest way to get help with false negatives is to make one 
available to us to look at, with the rules that it does hit.  Don't send 
it to the list, but place the full email (with all headers) on the web 
somewhere accessible, then people will be more likely to tell you what 
rules that they use to catch this sort of spam.
