>To: *@foobar.com yes # don't scan this one through spamassassin
>However, there is one email inside of @foobar.com that I want scanned in spamassassin. So, I added this to the same file:
>To: user at foobar.com no # but scan this one through spamassassin.

You have the right idea. The rules file will go down the list until it hits the first matching rule. So make sure your "To: user at foobar.com no" line is above the "To: *@foobar.com yes" line in the spam.whitelist.rules file.
