The 'Spam Domain=' list in MailScanner is pretty basic - you'd have to 
write a CustomFunction on it to parse the received headers inserted by 
your MTA and bypass it if the user were authenticated.

I personally wouldn't do it that way - if I were you I would nuke the 
Spam Domain list entirely and configure your MTA to reject clients 
listed on zen.spamhaus.org at RCPT TO: time (e.g. delay checks), then 
your MTA can allow SMTP AUTH clients to send mail regardless of the RBL 
status of their IP address.

That will achieve what you need and reduce the load on your MailScanner 
box at the same time.


Thanks Steve - any pointers on how to do this?
