What program are you using?  SpamAssassin?  If so,
what command: urirhssub or SpamCopURI?

If you have a generic SA 3.0, the command is urirhssub.  In
that case you should post the sample message to the
SpamAssassin users list with a description of the problem
to see if others can duplicate and debug it.

Strictly speaking this is an issue with a program using
SURBLs rather than SURBLs themselves.
