Hi all.

Im trying to make an exception in the spam checking. I need to allow some
users to have all their email to be bypassed from spam checking. I see in
the MailScanner.conf that you can have a file ruleset and specify as

# Spam Whitelist:
# Make this point to a ruleset, and anything in that ruleset whose value
# is "yes" will *never* be marked as spam.
# This can also be the filename of a ruleset.
#Is Definitely Not Spam = no
Is Definitely Not Spam = %rules-dir%/spam.whitelist.rules

In this file (spam.whitelist.rules) I made the following entries but it is
not working.

# This is where you can build a Spam WhiteList
# Addresses matching in here, with the value
# "yes" will never be marked as spam.
#From:          152.78.         yes
#From:          130.246.        yes

To              someone at               yes
FromOrTo:       default                                         no

Any help will be appreciated.
