So ok...here's what I got (admit it...you saw this coming ;)).  Thanks 
to Joel, Nathan, and Rmkml for the HUGE help.

Unusually long mailto, possibly malicious"; flow:to_server, established; 
content:"mailto:<"; isdataat:200,relative; content:!">"; within:200; 
content:!"|0A|"; within:200; classtype:bad-unknown; sid:10000022; 
reference:url,http://seclists.org/bugtraq/2012/Sep/29; rev:1;)

This could possibly be extended to port 25 as well to determine initial 
point of entry.  I don't really have a pcap of this to test (booooo) but 
so far no hits in a live environment...I honestly don't really ever 
expect to see this ever hit, but eh...who knows.  The vuln that brought 
this about is already patched with MS012-052, so this may have just been 
an exercise in learning and not much else.  Thanks all!
