I assume that you mean that you don’t want Mailscanner to scan for anything except viruses. If so, you need to setup rulesets in Mailscanner.conf for:

	Use Spamassassin =
	Dangerous Content Scanning =
	Filename Rules =
	Filetype Rules =

That exempt messages originating from the  IP of the mail hub from using these tests.

I believe the Mailscanner List Archives has more specific instructions.
