MS Config Question - outbound

Why?  Because the customer asked that a default disclaimer/signature
block be added to all his outbound emails.  I figured using my
mailscanner box as a smarthost and then using the rules to sign outbound
messages would be easiest.

All I was missing was the architecture of the rules to "sign" just the
outbound messages from his domain.

I've gotta ask..


I know of no anti-virus program that looks for "This message was scanned
and found to be clean" and then ignores scanning the message.

What's the point?

I've seen spam with a EXE virus attached ("Microsoft Security Patch! 
INSTALL NOW!") with a "This message was found to be virus clean."
