You can whitelist sender addresses, would this solve your problem? I have
these lines in /etc/amavis/conf.d/50-user​:

read_hash(\%whitelist_sender, '/etc/amavis/whitelist');
@whitelist_sender_maps = (\%whitelist_sender);
    bypass_spam_checks_maps   => ['@whitelist_sender_maps'],  # don't
spam-check this mail
    bypass_banned_checks_maps => ['@whitelist_sender_maps'],  # don't
banned-check this mail
    bypass_header_checks_maps => ['@whitelist_sender_maps'],  # don't
header-check this mail

File /etc/amavis/whitelist contains a line-by-line list of whitelisted
addresses. To whitelist a whole domain, just precede with a dot. Examples:
