Recently I started getting loads of spam from these people dns8brandeis.com curious text in the bottom of the email:

Hundreds of similar rubbish emails are trapped by the BT-Yahoo Spam Trap on my setups.

Ask Spam Assassin why they are failing you.

Note: take care with these random word emails. Some are known to contain nasties.
