I am getting a few false positives on several mailing lists that I
subscribe to. Here is a header from one of them.

Okay, so I do not want this message to be marked as spam, but how do I
properly whitelist it? I have already made an entry in the rules file
that says "To:  comp-news at      yes", but still messages from this
list are being labeled as spam. Also, is it possible to use other
headers to whitelist with?

Best Regards,
