For your problem it depends where abouts you are 'whitelisting' as to what point it get to before it sees the 'whitelist'.
If you want the big 'on/off' setting it's "scan messages" in MailScanner.conf. There's also settings about whether or not run the spam checks, whether spamassassin whitelists and a whole range of other places you can whitelist depending on what then actual requirement is.
