Thanks Steve for the quick response.
I am not sure where to find the Spamassassin report you mentioned, but
looking at the Spamassassin section of the Mailwatch detail there is no
mention of those rules there.

Also, I searched all of the files in /etc/mail/spamassassin &
/usr/share/spamassassin for the sending domain name and found no such entry.

Am I missing something here?
