Your examples worked very well. I've tested both methods, and it was
much easier than I thought. Thanks so much. Where is this best
documented, so I may review more thoroughly?

Yes, I'm using postfix with clamav via amavisd. How do I properly
whitelist senders for virus scanning? Perhaps a all_virus_to of sorts?

This case was via localhost, but does the whitelist_from_rcvd work to
whitelist users from clamav scanning when not via localhost? I could
swear that has been effective for me in the past.

Thanks again,
