No offense, but this sounds rather self-serving. "I don't care who I
damage, as long as my bottom line is safe." I'm not a MailScanner
expert here, but I'd be willing to bet that someone could come up with
an alternate solution that would be a decent compromise. But
'reverse-spamming' everyone else so that you have no chance of upsetting
your customers seems a little selfish.
