I would handle it slightly different :

create /etc/MailScanner/rules/disarm.rules :

From: 	*@some_domain.com	yes
FromOrTo:	default		disarm

replace "disarm" in /etc/MailScanner/MailScanner.conf with 
"%rules-dir%/disarm.rules" where "disarm" is set (e.g. Allow IFrame 
Tags, Allow Form Tags ....)

restart MailScanner

So mails is getting scanned and Spam and Virii will be detected but 
header and body will not get disarmed.
