You need to set an exception in the antimalware policy. It will need to be a custom setting, so that you can include the email address you want to exclude as a rule.

You must not have the required permissions.
I have just checked my own Exchange 2013 installation and the setting is there.

Being "Domain Admin" or similar doesn't really apply to Exchange 2013. You need to check the permissions within the admin tool to see if you have the permissions to modify it.

hi Simon,

I am using Administrator account. Same account that I used to setup domain and install exchange server.

As I wrote above - being the Administrator account doesn't mean you have permissions to do the change.

This article on TechNet outlines the permissions required:
