(2nd Request) Disable scanning for a client that connects viaSMTP-AUTH

I have had the same problem. The work around I am using is rough and not
really what some of the experts would recommend.

I am using greylisting which has the ability to tell if an email has
come from smtp authed connections. This adds a header to say that. I
then create a rule to read that bit of the header to match the header
and then give it a -100 score. This also helps with spamassassin
auto-learn for the bayes db.

(not sure but maybe you can change the default header message generated
by greylisting to be more specific to you so your rule-set will pick
that up).

Its been working fine for me.

and now I need to relay the mail through the mail scanner because
outbound mail would be blocked by RBL's  and I have no option to add
another mail scanner server at this time.  There are other people that I
need to have admin access to mailwatch & mailscanner giving them the
ability to add users, change configuration, read & release messages,
etc.  I do not want others to be able to read my other business &
personal e-mails, etc.  So you see that is why I don't want all mail

You wouldn't need to worry about outbound mail if you configured
sendmail to relay your outbound mail through your isp. This of course is
assuming that your isp's standing is good.
