I have created a watermark ruleset to do 'nothing' for specific mail
servers.  The entries are not matching.

I created watermark.rules in /etc/MailScanner/rules:

From:   copweed01.morganlewis.com nothing
From:   copweed02.morganlewis.com nothing
From:   cppweed01.morganlewis.com nothing
From:   nothing
From:   nothing
From:    nothing
FromOrTo:       default         3

Here are my watermark rules in my custom configuration file in

Use Watermarking = yes
Treat Invalid Watermarks With No Sender as Spam =

What am I missing?

An example email that should have been excluded from the watermark
