Several suggestions:

1. Have a look at the ok_languages and ok_locales options; setting 
those up for your situation can make a difference--I ran your message 
throuh our SA installation and it received an additional 4.3 points 

2. Enable the bayesian learner.  Even site-wide Bayes is better than 
none, though that may depend somewhat on the size/type of site you're 
dealing with.  Your message triggered BAYES_99 on our system, (ie, 
Bayes assigns a confidence level of 99% that it's spam) and I didn't 
run it through our learner first!

3. Enable the network tests.  Your message received an additional 5.3 
points from the combined 7 DNSBLs the sending relay was on.

Altogether, our SA installation assigned your message a score of 
15.1, which is above our local reject threshold.
