Also, by doing a SpamAssassin check on a message which was already found
in a "Spam List", you are just wasting CPU and network resources doing a
large check on a message, for which you then ignore the result anyway
(normally). So you might want to consider switching off the SpamAssassin
check on hosts found in Spam Lists.
