Teo, I gad read that. What I don't understand is how to use that when the
mail messages in question are alreay stored in a mail folder. Or how to
just manually add (for instance) friends that I don't happen to have a
sample email laying around from, but whos email address O _do_ have.
Perhaps what the proble is here, is that I am misunderstnaing the proper
usage of spamassain? I'm expecting to find a simple "whitelist" concept
that I can tell it, If the emil originates from this address, It's OK, no
Am I missing something?
