[Greylist-users] Whitelists not working?

If the whitelist entry is created properly, it should work, and the counts
on that record will increment each time a mail is passed matching that

For a whitelist IP entry, the relay_ip must be the correct IP, and both
mail_from and rcpt_to must be NULL (not an empty string), the block_expires
must be < now() and record_expires must be > now().  Also,
$check_wildcard_relay_ip must be enabled.

What does the debugging output from the milter say when a matching email is
attempted?  What is the exact entry from the matching record in the db?
