The question is HOW you use the sorbs lists.

1) If you're using RBLs on the SMTP level, you must make sure that you 
have a whitelist file which "overrides" all later checkes.

As I'm a postfixer, this is done by eg specifying

check_sender_access hash:/etc/postfix/from_force_accepts,

textually BEFORE any of the RBL checks.

"from_force_accepts" will say "OK" and then all following checks are 

2) You will have to ALSO whitelist them in MailScanner, by using a rule 
for the spam checks (can't think of the according config directive at 
the moment).
That way the mails will be scanned, but not spam checked against the 
RBLs and rules and whatnot.
