Are you saying that if you have any header_filter_rules at all, that
posts held for other reasons do not result in admin notices even
though admin_immed_notify is Yes, and that removing
header_filter_rules restores the admin notices without any other

I can't see how this could be. What Mailman version is this?

I've looked at the current source and header_filter_rules is processed
only in the SpamDetect handler. Nothing else looks at it except the
web Gui to set and display it. If the message is passed by SpamDetect
there should be no difference in admin notification if it is
ultimately held. Even if it is held by header_filter_rules, the admin
should still be notified if admin_immed_notify is Yes.
