Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Put into your local.cf:

body BODY_VIAGRA /viagra/i
describe BODY_VIAGRA Something about viagra
score BODY_VIAGRA 2

Some explanations:
body BODY_VIAGRA /viagra/i
body - search for specified word/phrase in email's body (you can put here 'header' to search headers instead of body).
BODY_VIAGRA - rule name (can be anything you want)
/viagra/i - regex pattern to match your word/phrase. ending 'i' flag means case insensitive

describe BODY_VIAGRA Something about viagra
This line is description for rule BODY_VIAGRA, and description is: "Something about viagra".

score BODY_VIAGRA 2
Give 2 additional points every email which matches BODY_VIAGRA rule.
