I fundamentally do not approve of generating mail messages that
explicitly bypass the scanning. Asking for trouble. All other mail
messages generated by MailScanner are done so in an MTA-neutral way
(or at least easily configurable). To drop a message straight into
the outbound queue I have to generate the entire files myself, rather
than just feeding an RFC-822 message to the MTA. I'm not going down
this path just for something little like this. It's a lot of work,
it's very hard to get right, and you should probably be monitoring
using another tool anyway, such as Nagios, Nocol or Bigbrother.
