Whitelist questions

I have an email that I'm trying to whitelist using whitelist_from_rcvd
and it's not working as I expect. I've created an entry:


Here is the corresponding received header:

X-Envelope-From: <>
Received: from (unknown

Is it because there is no reverse DNS entry?

Also, am I somehow not using the AWL correctly? It's actually adding
points and not subtracting them:

        * 0.0 RELAYCOUNTRY_US Relayed through United States
        * 0.3 LOC_RCVD_UNK Contains unknown IP in Received header
        * 1.4 BOTNET Relay might be a spambot or virusbot
        * [botnet0.8,ip=,,,baddns]
        * 0.8 RDNS_NONE Delivered to internal network by a host with no rDNS
        * 1.0 FILL_THIS_FORM_LONG Fill in a form with personal information
        * 1.0 FILL_THIS_FORM Fill in a form with personal information
        * 1.5 FILL_THIS_FORM_FRAUD_PHISH Answer suspicious question(s)
        * 0.7 AWL AWL: From: address is in the auto white-list

Under what circumstances would this happen?
