Ah, so Spam Checks = no does no spam check at all while the other two do
but I can change the default action for the result, did I get that right?
Hm, looking at the headers I think I didn't get it right, because there's
no spam score (0.0) shown on all whitelisted mail. ;-)
(using Is Definitely Not Spam = %rules-dir%/spam.whitelist.rules)
If I understand you correctly they should go through (since the default
action is store) and they *do* go thru but they are all flagged as W/L and
score of 0.0 in Mailwatch.

I don't understand, sorry. $_ is the "validated sender address" in
sendmail, how, where do you change what?

Yes, that's clear now, but not so much of the stuff above, sorry :-(
