Sorry to seem ignorant or be a pest just so I am clear on what I need to do. As I would like to leave the current rule in place as it is a good practice. here are the steps I will take.
1) create new file called content.scanning.rules and place in the path /etc/Mailscanner/rules folder
2) file should read as below:
FromOrTo: default yes
From: *.*blackberry*.net no
3) edit Mailscanner.conf change the following line that currently states:
Dangerous Content Scanning = yes
Dangerous Content Scanning = %rules-dir%/content.scanning.rules
Thanks for you time

Just add this line to /etc/MailScanner/rules/content.scanning.rules
FromOrTo: default yes
Then "service MailScanner restart", or "service MailScanner reload" if
MailScanner is already running.
