I use this with the whitelist being a text file with one address per

Tim, you will have a problem with overmatching on this. For example,
if I were looking for my own email address (dman@) and had it in the
whitelist, but then got mail from someone named feldman@ or sandman@
or freedman@ or goldman@ or whatever, it would match. In fact, I
just tried it to be double-sure.
I understand this if using "dman@" only in the whitelist, but what if the
whitelist had dman(_at_)whatever(_dot_)com(_dot_) Would my recipe still match
