1. Why you do not like the solution of installing MailScanner on your
secondary mail server?

2. It sounds as though you are only using MailScanner's (rather limited) spam
detection capabilities - you would do a far better job if you installed
SpamAssassin as well, and this would no longer be limited to identifying spam
by the sending machine's IP address.



The only problem with the Universe as a platform, though, is that it is
currently running someone else's program.
