And also, are you sure that the real "sender" address is
"MileagePlus at UnitedOffers.com"? MailScanner doesn't use the values in the
headers at all, as they are often different from the real sender address so
they look nice. If your mail has a "Return-Path" header at the top (you
will have to view the full email headers to show this), then that is the
address you want to whitelist, not the "From:" address. If you don't have a
Return-Path: header then look for the message in your maillog as that will
show the true sender address.
