I have postfix configured to listen on port 587 aswell. All email to
this port has to be authenticated and for these mails mailscanner is
bypassed altogether. Any viruses will still be caught by the actual mail
server as virus scanning is running on it aswell.

Hi Gareth,

I am already listening on 587. I set this up years ago to help out a home
worker using AOL at the time. Can you give me any pointers on how to allow
this route to bypass MailScanner?
