whitelist options in SA user_prefs not being obeyed?

Anyone know why a whitelist_from entry in my SpamAssassin user_prefs
file wouldn't be followed?

I've got the following entries (amoung others):
whitelist_from  joeuser at aol.com

But when I received a message from Joe, the following headers were
logged ...
> Return-Path: <joeuser at aol.com>
> Received: from qtemp.net (yada yada)

Notice there is no USER_IN_WHITELIST tag?

Any suggestions?

btw: I mocked up the mail from joeuser at aol.com to test it.
