For what it's worth

I don't know for sure who Wayne Madsen is but I think he's the same guy who was pushing a story about the White House being indicted last year, so take it with a big grain of salt.
April 20, 2006 -- Beating Bush's NSA e-mail surveillance simple. According to NSA sources, there is a simple method to avoid having one's e-mail captured by NSA Internet filters that have been installed within major Internet exchanges, such as the AT&T facility in San Francisco, which is the subject of a class action suit against AT&T. By typing "Viagra" or "Cialis" in the message text, the filters will automatically identify the e-mail as spam and ignore it. The e-mail could contain the words "Al Qaeda" or "Bin Laden," but as long as Viagra or Cialis are also contained in the text, the e-mail will pass through the filters without being intercepted.
Kathy checked Snopes and it hasn't made the urban myths yet but one wonders if the mail would make it past the recipient's spam filter and as Exile pointed out in an earlier comment, it seems hard to believe the government's filters would be that easily duped.

If anyone trys it, I'd be interested to know if the mail actually made it past the spam filters.
