Sorry.  Even though I subscribed, and sent the "confirmation" email, I still
don't get any of the messages in my email, so I'm posting via the "Old
Nabble" web form.  That doesn't allow me to automate indenting/quoting
previous messages, so I will manually put &gt's in front of all the lines if
you want.

Wow.  I would've thought I would have run across this info in all the
searching I've done about rules and custom rules.  Good to know, thanks.

I sometimes receive terse emails, but very rarely to the accounts I'm trying
to protect with SA.  Since no spam filter is 100%, this just seems to be a
rule that I could use, with an appropriate score.

I can train Bayes, but keeping it trained might be a bit of effort for the
install size I'm dealing with (small).  Since this is a combination of work-
and non-work mailboxes, the breadth of email types that the users would
consider ham is probably not going to make Bayes training very accurate, but
I would love to be wrong.

Thanks for the reply.
