Problems with outgoing mail being detected as spam

I think that since default is listed first, it will match everything.  Try
listing it after the other two addresses.  Also, you should only need the
address of your mail server, the address of your LAN gateway shouldn't be
necessary, unless it is acting as a proxy.

Subject: Problems with outgoing mail being detected as spam

Hello all. I'm running MailScanner 4.12-2 with Sophos AV and
SpamAssassin 2.31-16. I checked the archives and they mention a
setting in MailScanner.conf but it was sort of outdated. I think I've
traced it to adding entries in the
/etc/MailScanner/rules/spam.whitelist.rules file. I add the 2 IP's
that need no spam checking (my LAN gateway and my Mail Server) but
messages sent by my mail server are still be checked for spam (and
detected btw). Here's what the entries look like:


# This is where you can build a Spam WhiteList
# Addresses matching in here, with the value
# "yes" will never be marked as spam.
#From:   152.78.        yes
#From:  130.246.        yes
FromTo: default         no
From:   yes
From:   yes

Is my syntax incorrect? Is there another setting I'm missing?
