Yeah, I'm not terribly sure. Honestly, I haven't run Sendmail on a mail
server in close to a decade. I use Courier and pythonfilter (actually,
I wrote pythonfilter) these days. After looking through this milter
stuff, I'm really glad that I do. Courier and pythonfilter are far simpler.
I installed the spamass-milter package from EPEL, assuming that's what
you use, to look at it more closely. As far as I can tell, the milter
is running before Sendmail adds its Received: header, which means that
you can't use whitelist_from_rcvd (or at least, that it's not effective
early on). Furthermore, I'm not sure if spamc is being run a second
time because the milter is called again after alias expansion, or if
you're simply calling spamc from your procmailrc.
spamass-milter has an option to exclude IP ranges from filtering.
