They do show up in the maillog without any remarks.

This is the header as viewed in pine:
Return-Path: <quiminews at>
Received: from ( [])
        by l.xxxx (8.12.8/8.12.8) with ESMTP id h6G9SCos011122
        for <xxxxxx at xxxx>; Wed, 16 Jul 2003 11:28:12 +0200

        by (8.12.9/8.12.9) with SMTP id h6G9HFR5027587
        for <xxxxxxx>; Wed, 16 Jul 2003 11:27:44 +0200
x-esmtp: 0 0 1
Message-ID: <9493103-22003731662334624 at diseno3>
From: "QuimiNews" <quiminews at>

This is what it says in maillog:
Jul 16 11:20:13 l sendmail[10506]: h6G9KDos010506:
from=<quiminews at>, size=17915, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<
4506104-2200373165220452 at diseno3>, proto=ESMTP, daemon=MTA,

I think maybe that one action in MailScanner cancels the other.
New Batch: Scanning 1 messages, 18332 bytes

It seems as if the message has passed through html cleansing, MailScanner
forgets to apply the spam delivery rule??

Or maybe the html cleaning does an auto deliver??
