this message, and several like it have wound up in one of my junkmail holders 
because it exceeds the spam level rating spamassassin gives it.  Another .4 
points and it would be shunted to /dev/null.

The SA added header lines:

Your rDNS configuration is in bad need of tlc.  A Clue Bat should be applied to 
your ISP maybe?  My guess is that the RDNS_NONE is responsible for the rest of 
the hits, fix that and the others will go away as their lists expire.
