I just put the following entry in my SpamChecks.rules file:

        FromOrTo:       devnull at ihs.com         no

And sent devnull at ihs.com and dustin.baer at ihs.com a spam filled email.  I
received the email and no spam checking was done.  After taking the
above entry out of SpamChecks.rules and resending the email, the message
was properly quarantined.

It seems to me that your example is acting the same way as whitelisting
an email address.

Did I misunderstand you?
