A message came in and followed this process:

However....that address is whitelisted on this line of the whitelist file:
 
mailto:hinrichs@ohsu.edu|gail.woodworth@portofportland.com - hinrichs@ohsu.edu|gail.woodworth@portofportland.com
 
so why was it blocked?

Terry,

The sender in the email above is " mailto:prvs=40659F78CE=hinrichs@ohsu.edu - mailto:prvs=40659F78CE=hinrichs@ohsu.edu - hinrichs@ohsu.edu ", so the entry in the AutoWhiteListForcedDelivery.txt file you reference:
mailto:hinrichs@ohsu.edu|gail.woodworth@portofportland.com - hinrichs@ohsu.edu|gail.woodworth@portofportland.com
does not apply.
Please note that that file does support wildcards, so if you wish, you could modify it as follows:

* mailto:hinrichs@ohsu.edu|gail.woodworth@portofportland.com - hinrichs@ohsu.edu|gail.woodworth@portofportland.com

to whitelist all emails where the sender is something like prefix-bla-bla-hinrichs@ohsu.edu.
