The "Allow (IFrame|Script|Form|Webbugs)..." settings were set to "% 
etc-dir%/rules/foo.rules" instead of "%rules-dir%/foo.rules".

So the question is, despite:
etc-dir = /etc/MailScanner
rules-dir = /etc/MailScanner/rules

Why did setting a few rule sets to %etc-dir%/rules/....  cause the  
rule sets to not be loaded, then default to "no"??

MailScanner 4.50.15 (Perl 5.8.6 running on FreeBSD 4.6).  Why fBSD  
4.6?!?!  Simple:
# uptime
6:56PM  up 657 days, 19:57, 7 users, load averages: 0.08, 0.08, 0.05

Thought that I'd make a mention of this, just in case someone else  
strikes it there will be a mention of it in the archives.
