Except possibly don't use the word "spam", or anything else that is
liable to trip SpamAssassin and friends into giving your messages a
high score (so references to abdominal anatomy and cable tv decoders
are also probably unwise :).
I'm frequently surprised that more people don't run their (legitimate,
opt-in, whatever) bulk mail through SpamAssassin before they send it in
order to see how spam-like it looks. I'm forever having to pick
itineraries and electronic tickets from airlines out of my spam folder.
