X-Spam-Score parsing should be better

Reported by Bill Cole | January 31st, 2012 @ 10:39 PM

It is a somewhat common practice to format the X-Spam-Score header as suggested by the MIMEDefang "milter" (widely used with Sendmail and Postfix) like this:

X-Spam-Score: $hits ($score) $names

Where $hits is a numeric score (e.g. from SpamAssassin), $score is a string of asterisks as long as the integer part of $hits, and $names is a string containing a comma-delimited list of the specific rules matches.

MM tries to parse that header, but it only works when $hits is a negative number. Any message with a positive value for $hits is shown in the message list "Spam Score" column as 0.000. (Parsing works correctly with mail filters that only put a number in X-Spam-Score.)
