Can't you just add a regular spamassassin rule that does the same thing?

A rule that finds the header, a rule that finds the subject, and maybe a meta
rule that fires -100 if both are true. That should work almost the same way as
whitelisting, except Mailwatch won't say whitelisted in the display.

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
