Question about log message: Skipping sender of precedence list

Hi all,

I received this in the logs of my MailScanner 4.24-5, after it found a
message it said to have detected HTML-specific exploits...

MailScanner[15465]: Skipping sender of precedence list

   followed by

MailScanner[15465]: Sender Warnings: Delivered 1 warnings to virus senders

What does the "Skipping sender of precedence list" mean?

Relevant MailScanner.conf options:

     Silent Viruses = Klez Yaha-E Bugbear Braid-A WinEvar Sobig Swen Gibe
     Still Deliver Silent Viruses = no

We have been getting so many copies of Sobig and Swen to specific users that
we stopped delivering the messages.

Do the Keywords and/or Virus Names work in a ruleset for "Still Deliver
Silent Viruses"?  If so, how?  TIA!
