Yes, SURBL has two lists, and the Ruleseuporium SARE Ninjas have the SPOOF
and FRAUD rules.  But these things still sneak through.  Bayes cannot
properly detect these because they look so much like real E-mails.  

Also, the Highly Critical IE Vulnerability
(http://secunia.com/advisories/12889/) makes me paranoid about URL links in
Emails until it gets patched.
