Check out the auto whitelisting feature of Spam Assassin.
Generally a good idead to turn this off in MailScanner config...
SpamAssassin Auto Whitelist = no

I am running MailScanner and SpamAssassin, and am VERY pleased with the
results! All though, I have noticed a problem, which is probably something
in my configuration. Every once and awhile some spam will come through with
a rating of 19 or 21, which is well above the limit I have set at 5. If you
look in the header it looks like this:
X-MailScanner-Information: Please contact the ISP for more information
X-MailScanner: Found to be clean
X-MailScanner-SpamCheck: not spam (whitelisted), SpamAssassin (score=19.5,
required 5, ALL_NATURAL, BANG_EXERCISE, BAYES_90, CLICK_BELOW_CAPS,
DATE_IN_PAST_06_12, DRASTIC_REDUCED, FORGED_MUA_OUTLOOK,
FROM_HAS_MIXED_NUMS, HTML_40_50, HTML_FONT_BIG,
HTML_FONT_COLOR_RED, HTML_LINK_CLICK_CAPS, HTML_LINK_CLICK_HERE,
MANY_EXCLAMATIONS, MIME_HTML_ONLY, MISSING_MIMEOLE, MLM,
Obviously it is getting through because it is whitelisted. I dont have
these guys whitelisted anywhere though. Can someone please point me in the
right direction? Any help, as always, will be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!
