Send them to us;  we're happy to tell them to use Habeas. :-) 

(SpamAssassin is a partner, and whitelists mail using our  
headers, so those itineraries and e-tickets will sail through  SpamAssassin, along 
with about 3 dozen other ISP and spam filter  partners :-)   Of course, if it's 
mailing list mail, it *has* to be  confirmed opt-in.]
