Fearless users of the Outlook client can try this experiment by finding
their default_bayes_customize.ini, and changing this line:

    address_headers: from to cc sender reply-to

to this:

    address_headers: from cc sender reply-to

Also removing "cc" may (or may not) help (or hurt <wink>) too.

Note that this will also stop generating the synthesized

    to:no real name:2**n

token, which is usually a strong and valid family of spam clues.
