I got the patches but I'm out of the office. I'll test it first thing in the morning. Thanks for the great ammo to fire back with.

I was debating with someone on another list about the differences between some multi-thousand dollar spam-filtering software and MailScanner/SpamAssassin.
Here was one of his comments.
Two pieces of S/MIME goodness:
- block/quarantine any messages sent using S/MIME to a particular domain or domains (e.g. encrypted mail from joe at microsoft.com to jane at lotus.com)
- block/quarantine any messages NOT sent using S/MIME (e.g. mail from billg at microsoft.com to some_lawyer at biglaw.com)
These features alone are worth the cost for many enterprises, where fear of legal hassles often outweighs purchase and maintenance costs.
Might be a worthy feature. Let me know if it's possible so I can continue my argument. Thanks.
I wonder how many of his "multi-thousand dollar spam-filtering software" packages would have been able to deliver his new favourite features in about 3 1/2 hours?
(I posted tested patches to Steve off-list a while ago)
MailScanner thanks transtec Computers for their support
