Hi Julian,
    Thanks for your reply. I haven't had a moment yet to check out that 
boxes mailscanner.conf except except just a quick overview of the 
mta-specific settings. Can the spam whitelists and blacklists be used on a 
perdomain basis? For example, i've got and The user 
at wants a user added to his spam whitelist while the user at wants a spammer added to his spam blacklist. Ideally i believe 
these users at domain 1 and 2 .com want independent lists.
Thanks a lot.
