Look at this option;
# The purpose of this option is to set it to be a ruleset, so that you
# can skip all scanning of mail destined for some of your users/customers
# and still scan all the rest.
# A sample ruleset would look like this:
#   To:  no
#   From: no
#   FromOrTo: default           yes
# That will scan all mail except mail to and mail from
# To set this up, put the 3 lines above into a file
# called /etc/MailScanner/rules/scan.messages.rules and set the next line to
# Scan Messages = %rules-dir%/scan.messages.rules
# This can also be the filename of a ruleset (as illustrated above).
Scan Messages = %rules-dir%/scan.messages.rules


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