You can 'fine-tune' Amavis with the following to allow certain email senders.
In the /etc/amavisd.conf check that following lines are active (or add them)
Source of information
These settings point to 3 files that identify our whitelist, blacklist and spam lovers. Each file should have 1 email address (or part of an email address) per line. The whitelist identifies senders that should always be passed through even if they are identified as spam. The blacklist identifies senders that should always be marked as spam. The spam_lovers identifies our users that want to opt-out of our system and receive all their spam. Note that these files are read only on startup of amavisd, so if you edit them be sure to stop and restart amavisd. Also, not shown here is the ability of amavisd to support per-recipient whitelists and blacklists and MySQL? based whitelists and blacklists.
Check that the files referenced exist, that permissions are set correctly and put your email address in the whitelist file. Restart the service after any change you made.
