I actually happen to have a similar problem. I have that setting set as
a no (Always Include SpamAssassin Report = no) and my rules for
whitelisting the "From: and To:" are not being followed. Just the From:
and FromOrTo: are being taken into account so I may have the syntax
wrong. I have tried different variations, spaces, tabs, and it still
keeps on running them through the spamassassin:

For example, this entry in /etc/MailScanner/rules/spam.whitelist.rules
(as defined by MailScanner.conf) does not get whitelisted.
From: * and To: *@customer.tld       yes

Any ideas?
