Huh?  How's that work?  The mail is addressed To: user at ci.juneau.ak.us,
pretending to be From: user at monster.com.  

In spam.whitelist.rules I have 

  From:  *@monster.com    yes

so that any mail from there is allowed in.  Wouldn't using To: basically
mean that any internal originating mail was allowed out?

Or am I just being dense?
