Well, I know that SA removes the markup that it has added,
but in this case the report is attached by MimeDefang and not SA,
so how can SA know that it should ignore it?
Can you also tell me which headers are ignored by sa-learn?
I didn't find this info in "man Mail::SpamAssassin::Conf",
because as far as I understand, it relates to headers that SA adds and 
not 3rd party like MD.

Thanks for your comments.
