Whitelist FromOrTo:

MS will put in an extra header


that will who the actual From is, so you can debug stuff like rules
easier. Check this header against your rules.

Also doing a per domain on the spam.whitelist is prob idea as the
spammers like to "from: you", "to: you" in order to get around spam
filters. Best to use ip-addresses if possible.

Also what version of MS.

Ok so having asked for all that, I'm off home (via the gym), but I'm
sure the other people on the list will help too ;-)
