Or rather, all lists in the user section... sounds logical enough.
Note that some of SpamAssassin's HTML checks are resolutely on crack IMHO,
I've had to fix them manually. Also, some others too. Here's the relevant
part of my user_prefs:
# the following ones are scored negative as of spamassassin 2.31-1
score DEAR_SOMEBODY 1
# "received this in error"
score EXCUSE_16 1
score MAILTO_TO_REMOVE 1
score FROM_AND_TO_SAME 1
score SUSPICIOUS_RECIPS 1
score SUPERLONG_LINE 1
score NOSPAM_INC 0
score BIG_FONT 0
score FROM_HAS_MIXED_NUMS 0
score HTML_FONT_COLOR_GRAY 0
score HTML_FONT_COLOR_RED 0
score HTML_FONT_FACE_ODD 0
score LINES_OF_YELLING_3 0
score SIGNATURE_SHORT_DENSE 0
score NO_REAL_NAME 0
# no need to favour the mailing list posts
score X_MAILING_LIST 0
score X_LOOP 0
# these two vary... just ignore them
score X_PRIORITY_HIGH 0
score X_MSMAIL_PRIORITY_HIGH 0
# "if you do not wish to receive any more", only 0.365 by default
score EXCUSE_10 2
# just 0.something in the default scores
score WEB_BUGS 4
# this is just 1.538 in the default scores, and i've never, ever gotten a
# valid mail using it
score SAFEGUARD_NOTICE 4
