I would look at your 'MailScanner.conf' file and make sure it's pointing to
the whitelist you are modifying.  Also, make sure that the whitelist it is
pointing at has the ending '.rules'.

For example , in MailScanner.conf:
Is Definitely Not Spam = /etc/MailScanner/rules/spam.whitelist.rules
and then in /etc/MailScanner/rules/spam.whitelist.rules:
From:           suewbabe at cs.com yes

Just my take on the situation.  Your pathing may be different, depending on
what system you are running it on.  I am running MS on Redhat 7.2.  I had a
similar thing happen, and then i realized i left the 's' off of rules in
