The only test you show is a network test (DNSWL), you have no action on
the value returned by http://www.dnswl.org/, so it sould have returned
one result when the live test was run and a different value when you run
the manual test.

At tmie of the manual test, it seems that the address tested is in the
white list, hence the message is classified as ham.

As a rule of thumb, the value of network test should be regarded very
lightly when you run a single message multiple times, because they are
very likely to change.
