There can be many many "whitelists". The one I provide for whitelisting 
for spam checks (works on the "Is Definitely Not Spam" conf setting) is 
just a useful example. You can copy the technique to any of the other 
conf settings that say they can take rulesets, which are virtually all 
of them. You want to create a ruleset for "Max Archive Depth", setting 
it to 0 for the sender or domain you are getting this from or to, and 
leave the default setting at something sensible.
