Mail that is whitelist by the `dccproc -w whiteclnt` file is not
reported to the DCC server and so cannot have an X-DCC header.

`dccproc -R` should be finding from the first Received: line
and checking.  If it finds in in a `dccproc -w whiteclnt` file, there
should be no X-DCC line.

If is not in your whiteclnt file (perhaps in a CIDR block),
I do not know why there is no X-DCC header file with -a

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to run `dccproc -El logdir`
to see what is being whitelisted.  The start of the log file will
say what IP address is being checked, and the end will say in which
whitelist, if any, it is found.
