Default spamassassin, whitelists and config

Hi,

I have some doubts about how using the whitelist function is supposed to work

Whilst sending emails from me@gmail.com to user@example.com they were detected as spam - which isn't that surprising as it was a spam report. To get around this I added me@gmail.com to the whitelist. I expected this to mean the user would skip spam filtering, but that doesn't seem to be the case:

/var/log/exim4/mainlog
Code:
2013-10-23 09:00:30 Accepted from me@gmail.com to user@example.com by whitelist.
2013-10-23 09:00:30 1VYuIo-0002a9-1z DKIM: d=gmail.com s=20120113 c=relaxed/relaxed a=rsa-sha256 [verification succeeded]
2013-10-23 09:00:35 1VYuIo-0002a9-1z H=mail-wg0-f47.google.com [74.125.82.47] F=<me@gmail.com> rejected after DATA: Content analisis tool detect spam (from me@gmail.com to user@example.com). Contact The System Administrator.
Changing the spam required-score also didn't do what's expected:

/usr/local/ispmgr/var/ispmgr.log

It looks like the file was written twice, back to the default required score of 5.0 (or am I misreading that =)).

After these changes mails from me@gmail.com are still processed for spam and still rejected

/var/log/exim4/rejectlog
Code:
2013-10-23 11:31:21 1VYumY-00035P-Ss H=mail-wg0-f47.google.com [74.125.82.47] F=<me@gmail.com> rejected after DATA: Content analisis tool detect spam (from me@gmail.com to user@example.com). Contact The System Administrator.

  Subject: Correos de spam
F From: Andy Dawson <me@gmail.com>
T To: user@example.com
  Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary=089e01493c5aab420d04e9652d5e
  X-Spam_score: 5.6
  X-Spam_score_int: 56
  X-Spam_bar: +++++
  X-Spam_report: Spam detection software, running on the system "example.com", has
 identified this incoming email as possible spam.  The original message
 has been attached to this so you can view it (if it isn't spam) or label
 similar future email.  If you have any questions, see
 the administrator of that system for details.

 Content preview:  email summary [...]

 Content analysis details:   (5.6 points, 8.0 required)
I got around the problem by adding me@gmail.com to spamassassin's whitelist manually - but of course that's a change that'll disappear whenever spamassassin is restarted =).

So in summary

How can I successfully whitelist an email so that it passes the spam filter?
How can I change the spam required-score such that it takes effect?

Thanks,

AD

Do you have user spamassassin enabled for user@example.com?
In such case, whitelist has no effect.
