You can check mails are being filtered by looking at the mail headers. You should see a line like the following:

Scanning users' home areas

The avscan command can be used to scan users' home areas (either a list of users can be given or all users can be scanned). It can be set to email the results either to the owner of the home area or to a given administrator address.

Syntax: avscan [-avu] [-n nice] [-e email] <username> [<username> ...]
        -a = scan all users
        -v = verbose progress
        -u = email each user with information about their home area/email
        -e = email summary to given address, otherwise send to stdout
        -n = set priority level with nice to given level (default +10)
