Subject: spam.whitelist.rules problem, not working

I have this in my /opt/Mailscanner/etc/rules/spam.whitelists.rules

From:   *   yes

And it still gets marked as spam, and does not say white listed??

Here is a sample header form an email....

I can not activate my blackberrys when it is marked as spam!

Any help appreciated

MS 4.53 on Debian
