Personally, I think this is all absolutely silly: first off, an
X-RBL-Warning header is added to all mail coming from lists
that are sent from an open relay.  I send all of this mail directly to
/dev/null.  I also reject all mail with a content type of text/html or
mail with the ks_c_5601-1987 encoding used in the subject.  Looking at
my procmail logs, I have yet to kill a non-spam email and have a
greater than 95% kill rate on spam itself.  For those interested, here
is my .procmailrc file:


        * ^X-RBL-Warning:

        * ^Content-Type: text/html

        * ^Subject:.*=\?ks_c_5601-1987\?
