sendmail adds an "authenticated" to the Received line which obviously must 
be a variable available at this time, so I could possibly grab it in the and put it in a custom header. Not tested yet. But then 
MailScanner would have to take action based on that header. I don't feel 
like adding a custom function myself, I fear that's too complex for my 
Perl skills. Last time I added a custom function our MailScanner just died 
(see recent thread about adding X-Envelope headers).
