As I mentioned earlier, there are some kind of patches floating around
(on the MailWatch list, IIRC) that kind of try to solve this "at the
other end", but I'm not sure what state they're in, or if they would
completely solve your problem.

I'm too tired today to do the wiki rewrite (it'll probably have to
wait to the weekend, way to much Real Work, revving up for our big
trip (going to Singapore & Malaysia in a couple of weeks... Just for
R&R! No work for two weeks! I wonder if my system can take it:-)...
And so does the PHB... And my retiring (not in nature, he's really
going off to pasture) DBA has dumped all Oracle on me, so ... things
are pretty intense ATM:-)), but I'll look at it as soon as humanely
possible. I'm toying with a "one instance/three smtp-handlers" idea or
so, that might appeal to everyone a bit more, but that would need some
real testing, and testing take time, so ... We'll see.

I still think you could get this going, but best would be if you have
a "throwaway testbed" to play around on first:). Always a good idea to
have, for testing new versions of MailScanner, SA etc.
