Notify Senders Ruleset

I'm having a hard time getting the various "Notify Senders" options  
to work with a ruleset.  I'm wanting to only notify senders if the  
sender was one of our users.  But MailScanner continues to notify all  
senders rather than just the few I want it to.

Here are my relevant settings:

> Notify Senders = /usr/services/MailScanner/etc/rules/notify.rules
> Notify Senders Of Viruses = /usr/services/MailScanner/etc/rules/ 
> notify.rules
> Notify Senders Of Blocked Filenames Or Filetypes = /usr/services/ 
> MailScanner/etc/rules/notify.rules
> Notify Senders Of Other Blocked Content = /usr/services/MailScanner/ 
> etc/rules/notify.rules
> Never Notify Senders Of Precedence = list bulk

> # Match user at as well as user at
> From:           /[\@\.]ncsa\.uiuc\.edu$/        yes
> From:           *@*       yes
> FromOrTo:       default                 no

Am I missing something?  Is my ruleset incorrect?  Do rulesets not  
work like I expect here?

I'm currently running MailScanner 4.42.9.
