Domain of sender error message is coming from sendmail and not MailScanner.

Take a look at your /etc/mail/ and look for this line:

dnl FEATURE(`accept_unresolvable_domains')dnl

Remove the leading 'dnl' and rebuild your and see if that helps.

spam.whitelist.rules file but it continues to deny the emails.  Has anyone

restarted MailScanner "service MailScanner stop" and "service MailScanner
start" after making the changes.  I have also tried "service MailScanner
restart".  I have added the following line to spam.whitelist.rules

From:                           yes
