I believe you want to make a ruleset for:
Dangerous Content Scanning =

Or maybe multiple rulesets in the section labeled:
# Removing/Logging dangerous or potentially offensive content
# -----------------------------------------------------------

I have gotten to the point where I tell the users it's part of the anti-virus and can't be controlled per user or per domain (even 
though it can) just because even the users that say "I know enough to know what not to do with bad content" really don't (In fact 
these are the most dangerous users that will mess themselves up and I will get the support call for). They grumble a bit, but since 
it's part of the anti-virus they'll live with it.

You can also create whitelists for specific senders and/or receivers and with MailWatch they (the users) can do that themselves.
