Well, not quite at the top of my file, but a search found it.

I changed it from:

Scan Messages = yes
Scan Messages = %rules-dir%/scan.messages.rules

And copied my spam.whitelist.rules to scan.messages.rules

My spam.whitelist.rules only had a couple of domains in it in the form:

FromOrTo:	*@<scan-free-domain>	yes

So I'm assuming the syntax is the same.

I've restarted MailScanner and I'm crossing my fingers.

Thanks for your help. (And Glenn too).
