We try fairly hard to block non-en. Any sensible MUA sets a
Content-Type header identifying the character set, and that's easily

Considering ISO-8859-1 and us-ascii are the only two character sets we
*want* to allow, well, there goes that idea.
(I'm not sure if Content-Transfer-Encoding is relevant here?)

X-Priority is set by Outlook and co. The default is Medium, or 3 I

in-house corporate use (arguably the same thing).
And yes, I'm mildly horrified that I hadn't added it to the filters
