Problem with blocked content emails

Looking for scripts in messages has nothing to do with 
spam.whitelist.rules, which is supplied as an example of a ruleset. You 
can apply a ruleset to any configuration option you like, and call the 
ruleset whatever you like.
Look for the word "disarm" in MailScanner.conf and you will find the set 
of config options that are connected with HTML content scanning.
