This is because if you are talking about the MailScanner whitelist 
ruleset you have the syntax totally wrong.... here is an example of what 
it should look like:

From:*@www.pixologic.com	yes
From:smf at fsl.com and To: stork at openenterprise.ca	yes
FromOrTo:default		no

If you are talking about the MailWatch whitelist - it's still wrong, MW 
doesn't support wildcards, so you would just enter 'www.pixologic.com' 
in the From field and leave the 'To' field blank (default).
