Each of those elements have some constant characteristic. In fact, having
spam signed with GPG would make it easier to filter out - you could have

How come? You have to filter every mail in order to see whether it's spam or
not anyway... There is a tool that does a very good job for keeping spam
away from your box if you're willing to put some effort in configuring it
(I'm not using it personally, but my boss is - with a great success) -
