Watermark and User Notification

Unfortunately, this is not working.


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


	From:             no
	FromOrTo:       default                 yes

The notification message sent by "Notify Senders" if their attachments 
are blocked is still being flagged as spam.

Please advise,
