Actually, I'm not in the whitelist, but upon further pondering, I
realized I had forgotten that I use ssh to port forward my SMTP traffic
directly to the mail server, so it all looks like it originates from
that IP, which is in the "Accept Spam From" section.

Now I just need to wait for some more Spam to arrive so I can test out
the new directive to always include the SpamAssassin header and see if
it's work keeping turned on.
