Sure. I'd send this privately, but as it affects some other folsk as well...

The biggest thing that kills your mail is your service provider. The 
IP address of the sending machine's in the DSBL, and that rates you 
three points towards being spam. (Default setup requires five points 

SpamAssassin is also unhappy with the explicit latin-1 tagging in 
your headers. Specifically the From: header, I think. For me it comes 
through as "=?latin1?Q?Josef_H=F6=F6k?=" and that rates you an extra 
3.1 points. (For my mailer, the header doesn't actually resolve, it 
stays the mush of characters. I had to hit the web to get the proper 
spelling of your name for the presentation slides)

Altering the from: header will probably be sufficient to stop getting 
tagged as spam, though getting off the DSBL list would be better.
