That seems risky.  esp if you recieve "hi, here's a couple of pics of the
kid!  love so and so."  type emails in html or text with web links or
mime-encoded attachments.

what I want to avoid is shown here in the following included example
(recieved and to lines removed to protect the innocent, since the spammers
are now pretty much 'open-proxy' only anymore).  Note the real links, but
random crap at the end.  I recieved a similar spam this morning, also with
real links but random crap inserted between "font" tags.  I recieve about
20 of these formatted type messages a day.  I note that there is no Fuz2
metric, which I'm assuming means that the "FUZ2: 0.." blacklisting would
work for this message?
