MS Config Question - outbound

You need to understand the architecture behind MailScanner. It's not a 
mail server. It sits between servers and does what you tell it to do.

That being said, if your mail server is not the same computer where 
MailScanner is running, you need to tell your mail server to use the 
computer running MailScanner to be its "smart host"; this means that 
local e-mail won't be scanned but outbound e-mail will.

In order to add a disclaimer you'd have to set up "Sign Clean Messages" 
to a ruleset saying:

FromOrTo:	default		no
To: *	no
From:	*  and	To:	*	no
From: *	yes

... for example.
