I assure you that was not a flame. I do agree I did not frame it as
a suggestion. But the concept seems so obvious to me that it seems
silly someone does not determine unambiguously that the email came
from this list and then completely bypass SpamAssassin. With procmail
an "effective" but not bullet proof method exists that is fairly simple
to apply. (And if someone DOES spoof it the email ends up in my SA users
list folder where it becomes instant grist for the mill.)
You can also use whitelist_from_rcvd. But that's not as machine efficient.
