Just my $0.02: one of the recent strains of viruses/worms goes into a
person's address book and sends mails either to those addresses faking the
'From:' or uses those addresses as the 'From:'. If you unquestionably trust
whitelisting, this kind of malware will hit you square between the eyes.
OTH, since the whole point of spams is the mail messages' contents (buy
something), Bayesian is the way since it checks at the part that must
contain meaningful information (from the spammer's perspective).
