  <abuse%*@blacklisted> = abuse
  <postmaster%*@blacklisted> = postmaster

Yes, this is the way to do it.

I don't think so, exactly. I believe that if you blacklist a *domain*
(i.e. map it to 'error' in the router) there is no override. The
above works to accept mail being offered from addresses on the IP
blacklist or in a DNSBL.

The following works:

<> = = error

i.e. the whitelisted address has to appear before the blacklisted domain.

I may be misunderstanding the original question, but I think that's not what he was looking for...

That would allow you to handle mail to and from a single non-local address despite a domain-based blacklisting of the non-local domain part of that address.

I thought the question was about allowing exemption of a single local address from rules blacklisting a non-local domain, i.e. letting the local postmaster account exchange mail with any address in  the otherwise blacklisted domain.
