Been there... :-)

Make filename and filetype checks dependend on who is sending the stuff.
Instead of

Filename Rules = %etc-dir%/filename.conf
Filetype Rules = %etc-dir%/filetype.conf

do something like 

Filename Rules = %etc-dir%/rules/filename.rules
Filetype Rules = %etc-dir%/rules/filetype.rules

Create two sets of filename.conf/filetype.conf files (e.g.
filename.rules.release.conf and filetype.rules.release.conf). In the
.release.conf files allow all files that you want to be able to release
from the Quarantine. Then in filename.rules put something like

From:           postmaster at
FromOrTo:       default

In MailWatch conf.php adjust the QUARANTINE_FROM_ADDR to match the one
in the rules-file:

define(QUARANTINE_FROM_ADDR, 'postmaster at');

That should do the trick.
