Hi all,

I have an amavisd-new-2.6.6 install on a fedora15 box with
spamassassin-3.3.2, and having trouble figuring out how to whitelist
mail sent by root, such as cron scripts.

I've found several references how to bypass amavisd scanning for such
mail, but it's much more involved. I thought it was possible to just
whitelist the mail, adding a significant enough negative score so it
won't be tagged as spam?

I've included the headers from a message that was quarantined because
the body contained a pattern matching a viurs. I've also added the
following to spamassassin local.cf:

whitelist_from_rcvd *@mail01.example.com example.com
whitelist_from_rcvd *@mail01.example.com
whitelist_from_rcvd *@mail01.example.com localhost

Return-Path: <>

I'd really appreciate any ideas you may have on the easiest way to
whitelist by sender to localhost.
