I am trying to figure this one out on my own.  My original question was
intended to be a generic question about how you can look through the body of
an email and then enable or disable a rule based on that hit in the body.
Do I use a custom SA score?  If so, then how do you setup the signature rule
to be conditional on this SA score hit?
