Im curious, below is a snip from the log. An email comes in from one sender to multiple receipients.  How come the filter which whitelisted it differs among the receipients ??? Should they not all be Whitelist Email Address from ?? Weird that the first and last receipients are on the correct whitelist but the others are on the Force Delivery. Now had the senders domain not been on the Force Delivery whitelist, would their emails to those receipients been blocked??

I have printed out the order of filters which has helped me to understand how a few things were happening.

Roberto,

Can you provide a link on your site to easily find the very latest filtering order?  Also, can the keyword-whitelist be "pushed" up the list?  We use that filter to allow very few but very stubborn posts from our customers web forums when they can't seem to get their headers quite right and also where they can not predict the content.  We have a very weird RegEx to detect an encrypted string of *seemingly* random characters buried in the posts to whitelist on.
