I have a spam that is getting through to many users with a -19 score,
the reports says it is

From: address is in the default white-list

My whitelist contains only this entries

From:        yes             #to allow release from
quarantine with mailwatch
FromOrTo:       default         no

Headers for the messages are this

Received: from (
by (Postfix) with SMTP id E231933D20
for <myuser at>; Thu, 20 Nov 2003 20:01:16 +1100 (EST)

Mailscanner.conf has
SpamAssassin Auto Whitelist = no
Required SpamAssassin Score = 5
High SpamAssassin Score = 15

Any ideas whats going on here? Rh9/postfix2.16/ms4.24-5/clamav.6

Thanks in advance
