Puzzled, I wanted to see if there was such actually such a paramater
as "Dangerous Content Scanning =" by doing a   man MailScanner.conf

There isn't.  :-)  But I DID find the "Allow Script Tags" parameter so
I would try something like:
   Allow Script Tags = %rules-dir%/allow.script.tags

 I would put the following in the rules file:

   FromOrTo:       default         no
   To:             scripts.galore at      yes

... am I on the right track?
