My real conf file has Scan Messages = content.scanning.rules

which has been working fine. 

This skips any scanning from that ip.

I am trying to use the MailWatch function &SQLWhitelist to skip scanning rather than whitelist.

When I do change it to &SQLWhitelist no messages are scanned. They all get skipped.
