You can do that in filter_sender as follows:

sub filter_sender
	my($sender, $hostip, $hostname, $helo) = @_;

	if (domain_of_sender_is_whitelisted($sender)) {
		return('ACCEPT_AND_NO_MORE_FILTERING', 'Whitelisted');
	return('CONTINUE', 'Ok');

You need to write the domain_of_sender_is_whitelisted subroutine, which can
use whatever mechanism you like (including checking access) to determine that
the domain of the sender is whitelisted.  You may need to canonicalize
$sender by stripping angle-brackets and converting to lower-case.
