I have recently implemented something similar.  Management wanted to
allow only some people to send out of office messages over the internet.
Since our MailScanner box is inline, I wrote a custom function for the
Is Definitely MCP option.  It's not a complex function.  I am waiting to
hear back from management to see if I can post it here.
