The spam.whitelist.rules (as supplied it applies a ruleset to "Is
Definitely Not Spam") works on the envelope sender and not the "From:"
header at all, so the syntax of the "From:" header is irrelevant.
The envelope sender address is just the user at domain.com section, with no
surrounding junk, so your spam whitelist entry should work. Check that's
where the mail is actually coming from! You can add the Envelope From
Address to the headers in MailScanner.conf so you can see for definite
what it's being set to, just look for "Envelope" and you'll soon find
