The messages are being discarded because they have an
(case insensitive) header. The Message-IDs are logged in the vette log
with the message 'Message discarded, msgid: %s' where %s is replaced
by the message-id or 'n/a' if there isn't one. There is no debugging
knob other than modifying the code. The discarded messages evaporate
without a trace.
If you really think this is resulting in messages being discarded that
shouldn't be, I suggest you remove the KNOWN_SPAMMERS entry from
mm_cfg.py and instead, put
in header_filter_rules for some of the problem lists with action Hold.
That way you'll get to see the messages.
