Just delete it. on a related note, one of my lusers has a whitelist program  which sends an autoreply to EVERY message he gets asking them to go to a web site and type in a magic number (à la yahoo) to be added to his whitelist. this wouldn't piss me off so much except he's hesitant to let me trash anything with a high spamassassin score, and thus consistently has 60+ messages pending to bogus addresses in the outbound mail queue on any given night. aww fsck it. I'm doing it anyway. he'll never notice.  Choicemail: http://www.digiportal.com/ . ironically their newsletters are sent from blacklisted netblocks and contain enough goofy HTML to trip spamassassin.
