Except possibly don't use the word "spam", or anything else that is 
liable to trip SpamAssassin and friends into giving your messages a 
high score (so references to abdominal anatomy and cable tv decoders 
are also probably unwise :).

I'm frequently surprised that more people don't run their (legitimate, 
opt-in, whatever) bulk mail through SpamAssassin before they send it in 
order to see how spam-like it looks. I'm forever having to pick 
itineraries and electronic tickets from airlines out of my spam folder.
