Hi Glenn,

The "guts" are in spamassassin, of course... Matt Kettler has covered
this extensively on this list in the past (how it works, what it is
and what to do about it getting misdetected)... Pehraps one of those
would turn up if you search the list archives (on gmane) for kettler
and trusted_path:-).

You should set trusted_networks to your mailservers IP addresses (or network).
IIRC this is suggested in spam.assassin.prefs.conf / ....
