You would have in the configuration a line like

trusted_networks 65.19.133.2

See man Mail::SpamAssassin::Conf for details. You can have more than one
trusted_networks options and there is syntax to specify a subnet.

That would tell SpamAssassin that 65.19.133.2 does not forge headers, meaning
that in this case the mail really was received from a paypal.com server.

Assuming that each site that you filter mail for has their own preferences,
their preferences would include their own mail server ip addfresses in
trusted_networks entries.

It's not a matter of "going back to the next level". As soon as you hit a
non-trusted server as you go back through the Received headers, SpamAssassin has
no way of knowing that anything after that is not forged, even if lower Received
headers claim to have servers that are on your trusted list.

Again, see the man page for details: You generally don't have to explicitly
declare your own servers as trusted, as that can be figured out automatically.
But your example is a case where you would need the configuration option.

Please let me know if that works out -- If it does we can close the bug again.
