The existing version of this rule (2.55) is checking for 'X-Mailer: The
Bat!' and a Message-ID failing to match a given format. The version of
the tests in 2.60cvs is a little more complex but still dependant upon
finding 'X-Mailer: The Bat!'.

Recently I have seen spam (porn, single image) pretending to be from The
Bat, with 'User-Agent: The Bat!' instead of 'X-Mailer: The Bat!'

for 2.55 I've added the following to my

header __THEBAT_UA User-Agent =~ /The Bat!/


This seems to work, hope it helps someone and doesn't break anything :)
