I do not have such an option in my Mailwatch, I know only "Add to Whitelist". 
There are at least two different ways that this whitelisting is used. If you use 
the wrong one it's bound to fail, of course, as it won't match.

Does your test message (the detected one) gets marked as W/L and green in 
Mailwatch? Does the same happen for your problem messages? A message that is 
detected by the MS whitelist will be green, marked as W/L and will not have any 
SA hits shown. As you see SA hits that means it is not on the MS whitelist, 
probably because it contains the wrong values for matching (see above). What 
value does Mailwatch show under Lists in Mailwatch when you whitelist that 
problem message? And is this a value that could match your problem messages?
