Why? HTML emails are the easiest to classify because spammers can't help
but try to do tricks with them. Detect just one trick, and you've got a
100% ID as spam. The most common and unavoidable is this: <a
href="spammer.com">paypal.com</a>. Now I'm not suggesting that you have to
run SpamAssassin or a hundred procmail recipes, but I'll definitely expend a
little extra processing power to detect such flagrant and persistent scams.
Meanwhile, I quite enjoy my HTML newsletters.
