Postfix AROUND MailScanner

I am no expert, but maybe you could have a MS or spamassassin rule that
whitelists this email address, so it is never ever checked for spams -
then it will be passed directly to the outbound queue, and not cause any
extra load on MailScanner?

As i said, i am bit new to MS myself, so just a thought.

here is a tough one...

I am using postfix->mailscanner->postfix as a gateway.  It works really
so far, but one of the domains that this gateway is processing mail for
an automated monitoring system that is contributing a LARGE share of the
total messages being processed.

This system is using the domain's Notes server as its next hop SMTP
so the MS gateway is processing all of this mail needlessly.  I have
attempted to get the monitoring system use some other
SMTP gateway, but the user is either unable or unwilling to get the system

I would like my inbound instance of postfix (which per the documentation
SIMPLY defers all mail for MS to pickup and scan) to actually deliver
messages originating FROM this address without sending them to the MS
Any ideas?

I thought about a simple transport map within the outside instance of
postfix, but this would require removing the

defer_transports = smtp local virtual relay

Configuration within that postfix instance....

Any other ideas?
