Something is 'wrong' somewhere.
What is supposed to happen is that your system forwards the mail into the
spamcop system, which filters and parses the item properly.
What happened to this item is that its structure got to the parser wrong.
The body got 'squished' up against the/your headers without an
intervening empty blank line. As a result, first the spamcop
'examination' of the headers got tacked onto the bottom of the body
instead of the bottom of the headers, and so then the parse evaluation
failed to find the body link because the body link was in the headers -
*above* the spamcop filter's scoring of item.
Then, in addition to that very very bad problem which could never give a
good result for the body parse; a lesser problem is added to the
situation. That is, the body, even after separating from the headers, is
'poorly' constructed anyway. It is supposed to be html, but instead most
of it is some other rich text type format, and only the link is in html.
Currently I'm still trying to figure out why SC can't parse the body
properly even if the major squishing problem is solved.
