I was guessing so.
It's a shame, if so. Looking for "Importance: High" or "X-Priority: 1" is
a damn fine heuristic for identifying spam and auto-binning it.
And the best bit is that the only false positives are liable to be emails
from some PHB in sales'n'marketing, and you probably don't mind too much if
a few of _them_ get 'accidentally' binned.... ;)
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
