Subject: [MAILSCANNER] Setting up a Gateway

We have a farily busy mailserver here, looking after quite a few domains but 
I only want to use mailscanner on a small number of them. 
Rather than set MailScanner up on the mailserver itself and use the option, is there a way to use another server as a 
gateway? i.e.  the MX records for the domain are changed to point to the 
mail server running MailScanner. Mail scanner scans the email and then sends 
it to the main mailserver?? I have tried doing this via a .forward file on 
the mailscanner system and added the domain to the 
file, but when i send an email to the domain, it simply enters 
Jun 27 18:26:00 storm mailscanner[6618]: Forwarding 1 clean messages, 10300 
into the syslog and forwards the mesage to the main mail server. 
I know this seems like a 'why would you want to do that' situation but there 
is a good reason why we may have to go down this road. 
Thanks in advance,
