Thanks for the response.

I'm pretty sure I could work out how to get Exim to add a header for the authenticated users...

But how do I get MailScanner to skip its Spam checks assuming a particular header exists?
All I can see, are the rule files support the From:, To:, FromOrTo: type declarations.
I can't see anything for checking the existence of, or for the content of particular mail headers.
