Do the headers of the message you received by chance include the text
"not scanned"? Or, in other words, are you testing from a host or
address that you've whitelisted? I can reproduce the behavior you're
reporting when sending from a whitelisted host -- unfortunately my
updated mailscanner system's not in production yet, so I can't test this
specific scenario from a non-whitelisted host yet.
