    I suggest you check out spambayes, which is a (the) bayesian (of sorts) spam
    filter implemented in Python. It considers these 'words' just like any
    others, which means that they are likely to have no influence over the
    classification of the message.

    This is really up to the MUA. SpamBayes includes a nice example of an
    Outlook plugin that might be of interest.

    To fool simple checksum type filters, probably.

    Hey, Seattle is a decided beneficiary of global warming! But to be honest,
    this summer is just warm enough. Time to turn off the dial. Or, could we
    selectively turn it on for the winter? Even though last winter was pretty
    good, I'd like to get rid of more gloom.
