I don't see any reports about it to SpamCop.  You may want to
do that.

Definitely looks like spam to me.

Interesting thing is that it uses a "base href" syntax
with a later relative anchor "<a href="r.asp?oid...":

<html><head><base href="http://www.bravemouser-MUNGED.com/Creatives/FLTR5/"></head>
<table align="center" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="10">
<tr><td><a href="r.asp?oid=519481245&sid=808272&aid=3"><img
border="0" src="http://www.bravemouser-MUNGED.com/Creatives/FLTR5/pix/1.gif" width="182" height="353"></a></td>
<td><a href="r.asp?oid=519481245&sid=808272&aid=3"><img border="0" src="pix/2.jpg" width="475" height="353"></a></td></tr>

Does anyone know if the current message parsing code in SA 2.63
PerMsgStatus.pm or whatever correctly parses a base href +
relative reference?

IIRC from Buzgzilla, SA 3.0 will now resolve relative references
such as these into absolute URIs so I think it's handled
correctly there.
