Hm, I don't know if this has been discussed here before, but I think it 
works not the way one would it expect to work.

That implies the purpose of always adding the report: I want a report when 
it was not spam, so that I can see why it wasn't spam or whatever I want to 
see else. This doesn't imply that you want MS to *force* a spam scan 
although normally there wouldn't be a scan. It just means to add the report 
which is available from scanning, anyway. That's the only meaning which 
makes sense to me, do others disagree?

I want the spam report when the message got scanned, I don't want to force 
a scan for nothing. Does this mean I had to copy the whitelist.rules to 
another ruleset for "always add report" and change all "yes" to "no" and 
"default no" to "yes"?
