This is actually the same spam, word for word & space for space, that
started the "full o' spaces" thread, here:

    http://mail.python.org/pipermail/spambayes/2003-March/003806.html

Skip later reported that running an up-to-date classifier nailed it as spam
despite the absence of body clues:

    http://mail.python.org/pipermail/spambayes/2003-March/003834.html

I think that last report was also a bit suspicious, though, as the clue
listing appeared to contain hapaxes unique to the msg being scored
(suggesting that the msg had already been trained on as spam); e.g.,

          'message-id:@hkgioexchange1.corp.giordano.com.hk': 0.84;
