This rule is attempting to detect a MAIL FROM overflow.
I've seen some false positives when sending arbitrary messages like "I 
got email from ..." and various other variations of the same idea.
These can be reduced if you anchor the MAIL FROM to the previous 
newline, thoughts?

content:"|0a|MAIL FROM";
