You could try to convince the person running the filter to let you add
the secret key at the source, e.g.:

   X-I-am-not-spam: pa$$word

But it's probably easier to point your mail-sending program at an
address without a spam filter at all. If the person running the filter
won't give you even THAT, the meany, you could send the mail to a
special-purpose gmail account with an unguessable name. By pulling
that in via POP, you'll avoid the spam filter. Let me know if you need
a gmail invite; they're easier to find than a Starbucks these days.
