The lines in 60_whitelist.cf use whitelist_from_rcvd so that they are
checking the Received: headers for a amazon.com mail server for instance.
A message that simply uses the domain name in an address wouldn't be
whitelisted would it?

I'm not sure where I read about this (I not even sure I did read it
given I can't find it anymore :-( ) but isn't the point of this list
that these sites don't send bulk mail unless you didn't opted-out (or you
actually opted-in) and will remove you from their list if you ask?

Maybe I'm just lucky but I can't remember any spam from amazon.com even
after purchasing several dead trees from them.
