If students will be accessing the mail system, then I would hold them to the
same standards that you apply to incoming mail. Students are notorious for
doing things "they aren't supposed to do". You can whitelist any
administration people that need to be.


MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
