Hi Martin, my question wasn't directly related to my "avoid outgoing mail
being scanned" if that is what you are referring to with the gateway
machine ;-) It just struck me that rules for

Spam Checks
Is Definitely Not Spam
Is Definitely Spam

basically do the same thing, so are quite redundant. If I understand
correctly just using rules for "Spam Checks" would be sufficient? The
other two are just for "convenience".
