  Unfortunately thats not a cut and paste, so i dont have that mistake 
in my rules. Also, from what i have read, that exclude list is supposed 
have it completely bypass mailscanner and not be included in the scans. 
Though that doesnt seem to be the case. If thats not the way to do it, 
what way is?
