Released quarantined message problem

Hi Janne,

You'll need to create a whitelist ruleset on the 'Is Definetly Not Spam'
config option in MailScanner.conf and make sure that the IP Address of the
MailWatch machine (or if it is on the same machine as MailScanner)
is in it.


Is Definetly Not Spam = /etc/MailScanner/rules/spam.whitelist.rules

Which contains something like:

From: yes
From: 10.               yes
From: 172.16.   yes
From: 192.168.  yes
FromOrTo: default       no

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
