some messages not getting scanned

Hello all

I'm noticing that some messages are not being scanned by mailscanner. They
simply pass through and get no "X-MailScanner: Found to be clean" message.
Here's an example from my logs:

Mar 24 10:27:25 pangaea sm-mta[13995]: g2OFRPt2013995:
from=<FireYourBoss at>, size=2721, class=0, nrcpts=1,
msgid=<200203241527.g2OFROKC007439 at>, bodytype=8BITMIME,
proto=ESMTP, daemon=MTA, []
Mar 24 10:27:43 pangaea sm-mta[14002]: g2OFRPt2013995:
to=besales1 at, delay=00:00:18, xdelay=00:00:00,
mailer=esmtp, pri=123422, [],
dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent (g2OFRhf83782 Message accepted for delivery)

(#$%^@^@ spammers!)

A normal mail pass looks like:

Mar 24 10:28:15 pangaea sm-mta[14003]: g2OFSEt2014003:
from=<novalug-admin at>, size=663, class=-60, nrcpts=2,

Can anyone explain this behavior? Thanks...
