Because those are as easily forged? That would be my reason to not do
it that way.

Gary, I'm a PF type too, and can think of numerous ways of bypassing
MS with that, but... that's no help to you:-)... I do know that this
topic has been touched before (IIRC numerous times), although then
mostly for roadrunners/roaming users needing to relay through the MS
host. Try a little list searchuing over at Gmane ... Scott Silva
(among others) have this for Sendmail.
