and these two as well, since they produced quite a lot of false negatives in
the default configuration for me.

yes, changed that as well (ok, it gets boring I know ;-))

that seems really sensible, especially for a mailing list where there's no
risk of missing legitimate newsletters, which often contain this phrase.
Something I tweaked along similar lines was,
score NIGERIAN_TRANSACTION_1 3.0 (only 1.460 by default)
score NIGERIAN_TRANSACTION_2 2.5 (ony 0.070(!) by default)
With the default configuration these mails were always way below the
threshold, the test itself being absolutely reliable however.
