Mambo and "sex"

Recently, I had trouble with the Mambo [] contact component. Sometimes, the emails would get through, and other times they would not. There did not appear to be any discernable pattern. In the end, I discovered that an innocent looking word in the subject of the email was causing the message to be blocked by some spam filters.
