SpamAssassin 2.43-1 - tried upgrading it tied to unstable and it says
that I'm at the newest version. Basically, it was clobbering anything in
html on a commercial mailing list, such as personalised horoscopes.
These usually have some promotion of features on the originating website
- enough to trigger spam filtering. Unfortunately, my attempts to rescue
these with whitelisted addresses has proven useless as I'd said, because
by my experience, SpamAssassin doesn't always read or apply that list.
