There is also `dccproc -S Mailing-List -QC -i foo`

If you turn on logging (e.g. DCCM_LOG_AT=0 in /var/dcc/dcc_conf),
what "Mailing-List substitute" lines do you see?  In particular,
what values are in the "wlist" column?

(I'm assuming that you told dccm to pay attention to 
"Mailing-List:"  headers with `dccm -S Mailing-List` such as by
setting DCCD_ARGS="-S Mailing-List" in /var/dcc/dcc_conf)

It might be clearer and easier to use ASCII in the
whitelist file:

     ok   substitute	 the string in the target headers
