Unfortunately, some spammers appeared to have stumbled about putting
"bug#nnnn" in the message body. Did you see the one that came to -devel
yesterday? It had a couple o' bug numbers on it, and seems to have escaped
-devel's spamfilter because the BTS bounced it.

Also, keep in mind that bugs submitted against SA itself may contain spam
attachments (eg. a real spam mail to demonstrate an SA bug). Or does the
current setup ignore attachments?
