8.5 AWL AWL: From: address is in the auto white-list

The original message was not completely plain text, and may be unsafe to
open with some email clients; in particular, it may contain a virus,
or confirm that your address can receive spam. If you wish to view
it, it may be safer to save it to a file and open it with an editor.

If its in the auto-whitelist, why does it have 8.5 points counting against it? This isn’t the first message I’ve seen like this.
