    SpamAssassin... destroyed a order recipe with tracking info!

    We have SpamAssassin insert a header that looks like this:

    X-Spam-Score: ******** plus more stuff ...

    The number of asterisks is the score of the spam (between 5 and 40)

    People who are sensitive to spam can set up a rule on their Inbox to look for:
    X-Spam-Score: *****
    This catches everything that even looks like spam.

    People who are less sensitive to spam can set up a less restrictive rule:
    X-Spam-Score: ********
    This is a little more lenient.
