Those options are not necessary, just make a simple ruleset with the
ip:s of your own servers.

I would agree with Devin. I have been trying to do this also. The only
way I have been told is to manually add ip addresses into
spam.whitelist.rules file and content.scanning.rules file.
I have clients that have ever changing ip addresses so it is very
annoying going through the logs and adding them in everyday.

I would very much like that feature. May be somehow importing the pop
before smtp db file's ip address list?
