Also be sure to feed this stuff back to spamassassin to have it learn this thing as spam, currently it thinks it is ham, just use spamassassin -r <{file}
to report it as such. See the X-Spam-Status line..

Best is to have all "spam" mail that sips through reported to a central folder/file
(architecture depending on your environment), and have that reported to
spamassassin with a -r at regular intervals. It will prevent false negatives.
The same can be done for messages inadvertently tagged as spam mail, by having
those reported with the spamassassin -k switch.

You might also want to increase the points assigned to the RAZOR2 checks as
it was recognized there, but didn't get enough points yet.

ppfoong's rule works, but i think a better use of spamassassin would have helped allready.
