Well, you just said you were receiving a large amount of "system" type mails,
which for me would all be from my own/well defined set of systems.

I think this is definitely a section of SA that could
use some work, so ...  Patches welcome. :)    As a start,
PerMsgStatus::_get_parsed_uri_list() is the function that goes through
the text looking for hostnames or domains.  It looks for both schemed URIs
(http://.../) and schemeless URIs, which is where you're getting hit.

Everything else, such as URIDNSBL, keys off of that.

Random thought: URIDNSBL actually has a set of priorities when figuring out
which domains to query.  I wonder if the results would be better/worse if the
rules were based on the source type -- at least HTML versus parsed, but could
also be HTML tag, etc.
