I'm not going to add this as a feature unless loads of people want it, it's
a rather specialised request. However all you need to do is apply the
attached patch to
and then restart MailScanner.
A command like
         cd /usr/lib/MailScanner/MailScanner
         patch <
         service MailScanner restart
should do the trick for you.

Don't lose the patch as you will need it for future upgrades.
