Header change format

Hello.  Been gone for a while - trying to catch back up on this list.  This
may have already been solved, but if not, here is one solution.  You can do
your filtering by using two rules.  The first rule would look for

X-MailScanner-SpamCheck: not spam (whitelisted)

and if it found it, "stop processing more rules".  Then in the next rule you
can check for the

X-MailScanner-SpamScore: sssssss

header, and filter those messages into another folder.

Hope this helps (if it's not too late)
