Jan-Peter, thanks for the plugin tip, that looks very useful.

The reasoning behind my request is that if an anti-spam mechanism already 
exists in a product then why not exploit it? I'm a consultant to many 
different companies and there is no single solution that I can apply 
everywhere, nor do I have absolute authority to implement change. Leaving 
default configuration in place and using MailScanner would work best, and 
zero training requirement. It's not ideal, but it's pretty close.
