White List question

You should check if the envelope address is the same as the headers.

MailScanner uses the envelope address.

The envelope address can be found in the logs.

In my spam.whitelist.rules file I have this line:
From:           mileageplus at unitedoffers.com    yes

When a person gets an email with these headers:

From: United Mileage Plus <MileagePlus at UnitedOffers.com>
Reply-To: MileagePlus at UnitedOffers.com

It gets this:

X-MailScanner-SpamCheck: spam, SpamAssassin (score=5.818, required 5,
        FROM_OFFERS 4.10, HTML_MESSAGE 0.10, RATWARE_HASH_2_V2 1.62)

There is no mention that this address is white listed and thus, as it meets
my low spam score, is treated as spam.

I have other addresses listed that are treated correctly so I am at a loss
as to why this address is causing me trouble.

Any ideas on what to check would be appreciated.
