Yes, just put a ruleset on the "Virus Scanning" configuration setting in 
You can build a ruleset for almost any setting in MailScanner.conf. The 
"spam.whitelist.rules" ruleset is just provided as an example of how to 
use the facility.
Read all the files in /etc/MailScanner/rules and you will see how to use it.
There is also plenty of documentation on this subject on the website and 
the wiki, and also in the book.
