The screenshot is problematic for the reason that it is incomplete. The
whole page is not shown and the content of some of the text boxes is
longer than the box. It would be much better to post something like
the relevant part of

 bin/config_list -o - LISTNAME | grep -A20 header_filter_rules

to provide this information.

I don't think this would be a problem. The question still remains as to
why your header_filter_rules rule is apparently not working.

You could try applying the attached patch to
Mailman/Handlers/SpamDetect.py and restarting Mailman. This will
produce a 'debug' log in Mailman's logs/ directory with information
about all the header_filter_rules hits which may help find what's
going wrong.
