So, if I were, for example, to use your rule file e.g.

#	These senders will not be scanned with MailScanner
/^bypass at example\.org$/			OK
#       Everyone else will go through MailScanner!
/.*/                                    HOLD
/^$/                                    HOLD

But in the context of 

smtpd_sender_restrictions =
	check_sender_access regexp:/etc/postfix/MailScanner

That will have the desired effect.

Could you whitelist both senders & recipients this way, or would it hit
the HOLD action in either ruleset to pass via MS?
